I just noticed a request from editor MandyShaw asking this work to be renamed to Magnificat & Nunc dimittis (Dorian) (Thomas Tallis). Doing some research I found a related discussion on the IMSLP forums (here). I particularly prefer a title that encompasses the whole work, like "Short Service in the Dorian mode", as other movements may be added in the future besides the Magnificat & Nunc dimittis, but am open to other suggestions. Perhaps a compromise could be "Magnificat and Nunc dimittis (from the Dorian Service)" (at least until other movements are added.) Regards, —Carlos (talk) 14:51, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

It's hard to decide cases like this: IMSLP (as well) is full of tantalizing page names with only a tiny fragment of the work hosted, and I think either Evening service (dorian) or Mag & Nunc (dorian) less likely to disappoint in the short run. Richard Mix (talk) 02:00, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
