"[By] David Hebblethwaite ... Secretary to the Commission 1984-2004".
"This Study is taken from a much longer first draft. .... Even the longer version was largely confined to the workings of the Liturgical Commission and made no attempt to precis published documents detailing other significant input to liturgical revision from the processes in General Synod. References to the published documents are included here, though access to them becomes increasingly difficult. The parallel process of liturgical publishing deserves its own study and is not included here." -- Intro.
"The story of liturgical change in the Church of England from the days of Cranmer to the Alternative Service Book is told in many other places. This present Study takes the story from 1984 to 2004, to a point where the revision, refinement and expansion of the ASB's provisions were authorized, published and in use as 'Common Worship'." -- p. 3.
