Glory to God in the highest (Gloria in Excelsis Deo) is also known also as the Greater Doxology. In the Roman Catholic Church, the faithful sing or recite it during Mass immediately after the “Lord, have mercy” (Kyrie Eleison) on feasts, solemnities and Sundays in Ordinary Time, Eastertime and Christmastide. It is not sung during Lent and Advent.
