Based upon most of the Latin text of the Gloria, the text accents are well placed, which would, hopefully, carry over to when the singer sings this same text in other pieces. The two voices trade the simple melody back and forth, a plus for early partsingers. Much can be done with dynamics and teaching good Latin pronunciation since the text is not difficult and much repitition is used. The hand drum does keep the piece moving since younger singers will usually drag without a bit more energy behind them.
