This set of Preces and Responses for unaccompanied SATB resulted from an opportunity to compose a relatively straightforward edition of The Lord's Prayer for In Ecclesia Exon. It was sung during evensong in Exeter Cathedral in February 2022. This was the choir's first outing after a period of inactivity due to pandemic restrictions.

The setting has no divisi and ends with three simple amens for each of the collects. This would be a useful addition for choirs looking to expand their evensong repertoire with a new set of Responses, and a setting of The Lord's Prayer which works with the set by Reading and some others which lack that particular prayer.
