Choral Evensong is sung daily in most of the UK cathedrals and this ancient service can combine all sorts of music for choirs to perform, depending on the period in the churches calendar. The 15th evening every month is always remembered because the 78th Psalm is always sung and this is the second longest of all the 150.

The Choir of Salisbury Cathedral perform this as well as the Canticles and Hymns chosen for the occasion. The organ voluntary and recessional neatly round off the service.
