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?
Originally published by the Church Literature Association, the publishing arm of the Church Union before the emergence of Tufton Books.
