For more than 400 years, the Book of Common Prayer has solaced, sustained and exalted the faithful throughout the worldwide Anglican communion. Translated from the Latin by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer, its resounding 16th-century prose has shaped the English language and its literature. This collection of its collects - prayers for each Sunday and holy day of the year - is beautifully illustrated with wood engravings from a 1903 service book.
