"Unlike liturgical manuals of the past, which were intended specifically for the use of the clergy, this book is directed to a wider audience-to members of parish worship committees, priests, organists and directors of music, lectors, deacons, cantors and other singers, bishops, altar guild members, acolytes-in short, to all who bear responsability for the planning and conduct of public worship." -from the Preface So begins Howard Galley's classic guide to the Eucharistic liturgy, The Ceremonies of the Eucharist. Galley opens his formidable liturgical learning and veteran ecclesial experience for all worshippers to access. Throughout, he enhances his suggestions for practice with "the rationale and historical background" for his recommendations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Out of his deep familiarity with both liturgical tradition and the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, Howard Galley has provided a guide to the use of the Prayer Book that is sensitive both to its liturgical and theological backgrounds and to the practical and pastoral issues surrounding public worship today. -- Thomas J. Talley
This is more than a mere manual of ceremony. Based on a deep knowledge of the history of worship, Galley shows us that liturgy is living action, the work of an assembled people of God. Read, enjoy, and use this book. -- Ormonde Plater
Howard Galley's book is an important guide to the use of the Book of Common Prayer and provides historical and liturgical perspectives on the actions of both officiants and congregation. An informative and practical treatment of the ceremonial tradition. -- Lloyd Patterson
An absolutely superb book. I highly recommend it. -- Richard F. Grien
