Loosemore's setting of the Gloria in the translation included by Cranmer in the communion service in the Book of Common Prayer.

Three Loosemore brothers were born to a Barnstaple organ maker: John (1616 - 1681), an organ maker of renown, remained in Devon (Barnstaple and later Exeter); Henry (c.1600 - 1670) and George (1619 - 1682) were both appointed organists of Cambridge colleges, at King's and Trinity respectively.
Lyrics: Book of Common Prayer, 1559

Glory be to God on high. And in earth peace, good will to men. We praise thee, we bless thee, we worship thee, we glorify thee, we give thanks to thee, for thy great glory. O Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father Almighty. O Lord, the only begotten Son, Jesus Christ: O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, that takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us, thou that takest away the sins of the world have mercy upon us, thou that takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayers. Thou that sittest at the right hand of God the Father, have mercy upon us. For thou only art holy, thou only art the Lord, thou only, O Christ, with the Holy Ghost art most high in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
