The Alcuin Club was an influential group of conservative clergy devoted to preserving and restoring the liturgy of the Church. These tractarians were men of diverse talents and passions—theologians, musicians, architects, and more—united by a devotion to the sacred and beautiful traditions of the Church. Among the contributors to their tracts through the years were Percy Dearmer—the English liturgist who wrote The Parson’s Handbook and revived traditional musical forms in the Church, publishing The English Hymnal; Francis C. Eeles—who helped found the Central Council for the Care of Churches; and J. T. Micklethwaite—an architect and archaeologist who restored several churches throughout England and was Surveyor of the Fabric of Westminster Abbey. Collected here are 27 tracts from the Club discussing the most pertinent issues of liturgical theology throughout the first half of the twentieth century.
