Product description
The English Office contains daily offices for Mattins and Evensong (Morning and Evening Prayer) taken from the Book of Common Prayer, with additional material from Sarum, Roman and other sources. A complete resource for the recitation of morning and evening prayer throughout the year, it also includes: * seasonal propers * propers of saints * commons of apostles, martyrs and saints * an office of Mary * an office of the dead * the Litany * an order of commending a soul * an itinerarium (prayers before a journey) * prayers before and after mass * the Psalms and psalm antiphons First published in 1956, this classic Anglo-Catholic text is a companion volume to The English Missal and The English Ritual. A high-quality hardback with ribbon, it features rubrics printed in red to aid daily use.
Product Reviews

Andrew Hall
This classic piece of Anglo-Catholic liturgy was first published in 1913, often found bound in with the lectionary texts in use at the time (basically the BCP lectionary of Cranmer). A revised version was produced in 1931, this time bound with the revised lectionary of 1922. A final revision was made in 1956 (again annexed to the 1922 lectionary). It is a reprint of this final, 1956, version which Canterbury Press have now reproduced. For the many individuals who still prefer to pray the traditional Anglican office, enriched by other devotional materials and liturgical resources for a wider range of saints days, this is a long overdue volume (second-hand copies change hands for vast sums of money). I have only two reservations about this reprint. Firstly, the size is somewhat awkward (to my mind) for comfortable use. Secondly, it would have been a far more useful volume if the publishers had bound it up with the 1922 lectionary (as in their edition of the 1928 Prayer Book). This last would, I think, have commended itself more widely as a convenient volume for the daily celebration of the Office. Perhaps the publishers might give thought to such a book if a future edition of the present volume is contemplated?
