Abstract

Drafting liturgical texts for a new context involves recasting existing resources of the Christian tradition, new composition, and sensitivity to the doctrinal, spiritual and cultural issues of the time. With this in mind, three distinctive elements of the Holy Communion service in the Book of Common Prayer are analysed. Each was the work of Archbishop Thomas Cranmer: one was taken from earlier sources; one was a new use of the biblical text; and one was a new composition. Each element is considered in the light of how they are used in current Australian Anglican rites, thus offering a ‘case study’ of issues in the contemporary ministry of liturgical composition.
