Tallis made two famous sets as noted in this Wikipedia page - does this page include both? Or are those two sections of one set? (Which one?)

He made two famous settings: one is the ‘Incipit’ which starts from the first verse (Aleph); the other is the ‘De lamentatione’ which starts from the third verse (Ghimel). Both editions here include both settings.

Lamentations for Maundy Thursday were published in 1914 by New York: Gray.
