From The Caian November 1971 (written by PAT):

Bishop Hugh Montefiore, when Dean, was responsible for the introduction of special musical settings of the psalms, with illuminating refrains. After ten years the tradition has crystallised into the singing of these settings (composed mostly by Peter Tranchell for the purpose) as a regular item at evensongs on Thursdays. There are now eighteen settings; and they increase annually as opportunity affords.
