Historically speaking, the Book of Common Prayer
of 1549 - along with the King James translation
of the Bible, Coverdale's translation of the Psalms
and the plays of Shakespeare - is credited with
establishing the English language as we know it
and is renowned for its beauty and poetic grace.
The Book of Common Prayer of 1662, similar to the
1928 Prayer Book used in the United States until
1979 when it was replaced by a revised service book,
is still the officially recognized Prayer Book for
the Church of England.
language of the Prayer Book has inspired some of
the greatest choral music written for the Church
in the past 450 years and remains a valuable source
for contemporary composers.
Artistic Director for Chorus Angelorum is Ed Franklin.
