Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


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.”
