The music selected for the service of Choral Evensong at St Paul's Cathedral is, in the majority, the same programme as was sung at Coventry Cathedral, ten days earlier. In keeping with the church calendar, the Psalms appointed for St Paul's are 137 and 138, but as it is not on a major Saints' Day, no Introït is sung. 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 Richard Ayleward (1626-69), and the anthem Exultate Deo by Samuel Wesley (1766-1837), which Dr Arthur Wills described as "rivalling Bach himself".
