Mysterious Gloria

I’m wondering if any choral experts out there would be willing to look at an unidentified score.  Here’s the situation: a library patron has asked me for help identifying part of a choral work.  Her choir is performing it and no one, including the director, knows who the composer is.   Because of the size of the document, I can’t attach the full score.  If any choral experts have time I would be happy to send a pdf of the score or if anyone can suggest another list where I might post this question, that would be wonderful!
Thanks in advance!

This is a great mystery! Would you publish the identity if and when you find out? Curiosity strikes!

I would like to take a look at it. Even if I am unable to identify it, I am curious.

Couldn't a page or two be posted on here for all to see?

Will do!

Unless someone can tell me how to attach a pdf, I haven't been able to figure it out.  Also -- I get an error message saying that the document I'm trying to post is 'too large." :(

I'm stumped.  Anyone?

Do we have access to any of the other movements besides that one? And in what way was the original bound?

Unfortunately, no.  I was only sent pages 11-23.  However, I will check with the patron and see if I can find out more about how this particular choir found itself in possession of the mystery score.  I hope my next message to you all will have more substance.
I SO appreciate everyone's help, advice and expertise!  What a great group!

One further clue is that part of the movement is in English. Here's a link to a three-page segment.
