Both Latin and English are used -- i.e. not English as a translation for Latin text.
This work seems to have been first published in 1971 (or 1969?), though it's not entirely clear from available sources.
Full instrumentation from a "Google-cached" copy of a page at the Oxford University Press website, which gives the publication date as March 1969. 2005 page linked above does not list the percussion section in detail.
