The Qui Tollis, continuing the Gloria, is here a separate section musically.

The author of the Hymn to Saint Patrick seems to be anonymous? but it or a similar text may have been published as early as 1843 in Manual of Catholic Melodies: or, a Compilation of Hymns, Anthems, Psalms while it more certainly seems to date to 1870.
