Thomas Tallis composed a setting of the Magnificant and Nunc dimittis in Latin. The music is the first section of each work is the same, suggesting that they were designed to be performed together. Beyond that, little is known about when, or for what liturgy, it might have been written. It is a unique example of a paired set of Anglican Evening canticles in Latin.

It is scored for six voices (five in all but one verse), with two Treble parts, two broadly similar Contratenor/Tenor parts, a Baritone/Tenor, and Bass.
