Excerpt from The Prayer-Book: Its History, Language, and Contents

The liturgical compositions of English Reformers will, for these reasons, bear comparison with those of any age of the Church nor can we doubt that they were aided for the great work entrusted to them by a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Not without significance was it that the first Prayer-book of Edward VI though completed in March, was directed to be first used on the Feast of Pentecost.
