Worship in the Beauty of Holiness

Part 4, Introduction to the Anglican Tradition


By Fr. Mark Perkins





Here I consider the three great gifts that the Anglican tradition has given the Church -- the prayer book, the King James, and English sacred music (with a bonus of Anglican poetry!), as well as how the Anglo-Catholic movement restored more of the visual beauty, in addition to the classical Anglican emphasis on beauty in speaking and hearing.


In addition, we take a tour of St. Alban's Anglican Cathedral in Oviedo, Florida, noting how the physical space is designed for spiritual formation and, above all, worship based on the model of Revelation 4 and 5.


One note: I botched the eighth window. It's the Ascension, not Pentecost. You'll have to watch to figure out what I'm talking about though.
