Text of Lauda 34 "Faciamo laude a tutt'i sancti"

There are a couple of words here that I have copied correctly but wonder whether the edition has an error.

e.g "maggiure" line 1 et al
"excelença" (with one l) line 5
"gram" (line 10)

Faciamo laude a tutt'i sancti colla vergene maggiure,
Let us sing praise to all the saints and the noble Virgin,

de buon core, cum dolçe canti, per amor del creatore.
