SATB. Tallis' Dorian Service is a gem of Renaissance art. It is in four parts with clear syllabic word-setting and represents the prototype of the early English anthem. This edition has been transposed up for modern choirs. A gorgeous setting of the Song of Simeon. For the Mag and Nunc together, click here.

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace: according to thy word.
For mine eyes have seen: thy salvation,
Which thou hast prepared: before the face of all people;
To be a light to lighten the Gentiles: and to be the glory of thy people Israel.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.
