Matthew Whittall's (b. 1975) Love is Little (2009) is a modern motet taking a Shaker hymn tune as its cantus firmus. The original melody is gradually slowed down, looped and fragmented, forming a quiet, ambient soundscape in which each singer performs their own partly freely. It is suitable for larger choirs, but also performable by as few as 20 singers.

Matthew Whittallin sekakuoroteos Love is little (2009) on moderni motetti, jonka cantus firmuksena soi Shakers-liikkeeltä lainattu virsisävelmä. Alkuperäinen melodia hidastuu ja fragmentoituu vähitellen muodostaen äänimaiseman, jossa yksittäiset laulajat esittävät omat osuuteensa vapaassa tempossa. Teos sopii suurelle kuorolle, mutta sen voi esittää myös pienimmillään 20 laulajan voimin.
