Overview

Walter Frere (1863-1938) was one of the leading Anglo-Catholic figures of his day and one of the Church of England’s most notable liturgists.

A monk and accomplished musician, he was the first to compile a book of collects and readings for saints’ days - the prototype of Exciting Holiness. His liturgical influence extended throughout the Anglican Communion. He was Bishop of Truro and then became one of the founders of the Community of the Resurrection, Mirfield – today a thriving monastic community and theological college. He twice served as its Superior.

This set of essays assesses his legacy, his wide ranging contribution to church life and his continuing influence. It constitutes the first critical study of his work and will be of interest to students of liturgy, church music and the Church of England in the 20th century, as well as to the many friends and associates of the Community and priests who trained at Mirfield.

Contributors include Geoffrey Rowell, Bishop of Europe; Canon Alan Wilkinson; George Guiver, Superior of the Community of the Resurrection, Peter Alan, Vice–principal of the College of the Resurrection, and others.
