Random information on the term ““Gloria in Excelsis __””:
E (named e /iː/, plural ees) is the fifth letter and the second vowel in the modern English alphabet and the ISO basic Latin alphabet. It is the most commonly used letter in many languages, including Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Latin, Latvian, Norwegian, Spanish, and Swedish.
The Latin letter ‘E’ differs little from its source, the Greek letter epsilon, ‘Ε’. This in turn comes from the Semitic letter hê, which has been suggested to have started as a praying or calling human figure (hillul ‘jubilation’), and was probably based on a similar Egyptian hieroglyph that indicated a different pronunciation. In Semitic, the letter represented /h/ (and /e/ in foreign words); in Greek, hê became the letter epsilon, used to represent /e/. The various forms of the Old Italic script and the Latin alphabet followed this usage.
Although Middle English spelling used ⟨e⟩ to represent long and short /e/, the Great Vowel Shift changed long /eː/ (as in ‘me’ or ‘bee’) to /iː/ while short /ɛ/ (as in ‘met’ or ‘bed’) remained a mid vowel. In other cases, the letter is silent, generally at the end of words.

Derek Oldbury (1924 – July, 1994) (often known as DEO) was a British draughts champion from Devon. He was a rival of Marion Tinsley and, after Tinsley, “probably the second best player of all time.” Oldbury was interested in Go As You Please (GAYP) draughts, in which players are free to choose their own opening moves.
He competed in 7 world championship matches, winning in 1976, 1976 (GAYP) and 1991 (3-move).
Oldbury was born paraplegic. He wrote the 6-volume The Complete Encyclopaedia of Draughts.
