Agnus Dei

I have had an idea for a theme for the Agnus Dei section.

Having an idea for this first phrases of the Agnus Dei, I am toying with the idea of using an extended “canon”, probably lasting right the way through the piece. Examples of fuging tunes are a common in West Gallery tradition but extended canons are not – although some tunes, such as Tallis’ Canon persisted into the period. I am wondering whether this style sits well with my idea of writing in the West Gallery genre… Something for me to think about.
