In 1865, John Mason Neale and others founded the Anglican and Eastern Churches
Association, an organization dedicated to praying and working for the reunion of
the Eastern Orthodox Churches and the Anglican Communion. This book contains
translations of the Eastern liturgies and hymns into English. To aid his readers, Neale
provides information about the material's history, context, and style. The translations
themselves measure up to any standard of excellence. They reflect not only the linguistic
scholarship of their author, but also his skill as the lyricist of the beloved Christmas hymn
“Good King Wenceslas.”
