Sahih Muslim – Vol.1 – Book IV – Chapter CLXI – P.219

(788) Abda reported: Umar b al-Khattab used to recite loudly these words:  Subhanak Allahumma wa bi hamdika wa tabarakasmuka wa ta’ala jadduka wa la ilaha ghairuka [Glory to Thee, O Allah, and Thine is the Praise, and Blessed is Thy Name, and Exalted is Thy Majesty, and there is no other object of worship beside Thee].  Qatada informed in writing that Anas b Malik had narrated to him: I observed prayer behind the Apostle of Allah, peace be upon him, and Abu Bakr and Umar and Uthman.  They started (loud recitation) with: Alhumdulilahi Rabb al-Alamin [All Praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds] and did not recite Bismillah ir-Rahman-ir-Rahim (loudly) at the beginning of the recitation or at the end of it.
