Mass in D - Gloria

The second movement of the Mass.  When I finish the remaining parts I'll post them all together, but I was eager to post this part.  I was a little unsure what key signature to choose...I know that's a really basic thing but the tonic in the beginning is A, so ostensibly it should be there, however leaving it in D (which the score is in) results in less accidentals...so when there's already a lot of modulation in the piece is it better to minimize accidentals or pick the key signature which makes the most sense musically? 

Any comments and feedback are welcome.  Thanks for listening!

Great work!

I love the choice of begining a Gloria part in a mass solemnly, mf, and adagio... and that the presto part comes later and doesnt last too long and goes back to Tempo I.

If I had to find something to suggest  it would only be that maybe you over-orchestrated it towards the end (like page 12) where every line is doubled or tripled.. I dont think you need to do that if you get a real orchestra and a real choir to perform this. In Sibelius it's ok (I suppose you use Sibelius or something similar) but in real situations maybe it's too much. I realize you want to get an as big as possible sound there but maybe there is a point where you need to restrain yourself - economy of means etc. (I know it's hard... I cant get it done myself either)
