Then I Saw is inspired by early Renaissance polyphony, using the same compositional technique as the motet Nesciens mater of Jean Mouton (c.1459 – 1522).

Both pieces are a multiple canon throughout; the upper choir repeats the music of the lower choir at a 5th (in this piece after three measures). The upper choir’s material is strictly derived from a delayed tranposition of the lower choir’s, including occassional swapping of parts and octave transpositions.
