    Default Imitative Motets

    Do you know any pieces like this: Tallis - Salvator Mundi
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yu1_M073ZNg (first half)

    I'm not ver experienced with motets but I suppose I'm looking for canons with a minor mode feel, one or two bars between entries, from the Renaissance (or maybe Baroque) period, with more of a chordal structure than meslismatic. Is there a name for what I'm after, I wonder?

    Thanks in advance for any leads!

    EDIT: Well I seem to have put this in the wrong forum

    Well you'll find something like this in most of Tallis motets..
    You'll like Loquebantur variis linguis, that's one of my favorites.

    Thanks, got a CD of Tallis' motets. Great listening

    But I'm have suprising difficulties finding similar techniques by other composers. I found a few by Josquin but he prefers the major mode. Any more names?
