The music selected for the service of Choral Evensong at Peterborough Cathedral is Ascension-themed, the Ascension having being kept in the church’s calendar just two days earlier.

The canticles sung at the service are Henry Smart's (1813-79) dramatic Evening Service in Bb with its fanfare introduction, the Preces and Responses by our Musical Director, and the anthem is Francis Jackson’s vivid setting of Sing praise to God who reigns above, composed for Exeter Cathedral Voluntary Choir in 1981.
