If Ye Love Me was composed as a reflective commentary on the well-known motet by Thomas Tallis (1505–1585). Homophony predominates in the first section but with clusters rather than the traditional harmonies used by Tallis. At approximately the midpoint of the piece, the texture is reduced to a very simple four-voice contrapuntal texture as a brief reference to Tallis’ style. The chorus then divides into two groups with one group continuing the counterpoint which is now expanded into a more active and complex style. The second group of voices returns to the homophonic style, but now in widely expanded harmonies. Thus, the motet concludes with homophony and counterpoint sounding simultaneously. Duration: 2:00
