This seminal work by one of the world's most distinguished liturgical scholars fills an important gap in the history of the Church of Scotland and of Scottish worship. It offers an in-depth narrative of a neglected liturgical legacy and a perceptive analysis of the Church's evolving patterns of worship from the middle of the 19th century to the present day.

A magisterial study, it includes:

* Inherited Patterns of Public Prayer
* Liturgical Disruption: Dr Robert Lee Of Greyfriars, Edinburgh
* The Church Service Society and The Euchologion
* Nineteenth Century Public Worship Provisions, including open-air communions
* Worship's Companions: Hymns and Choirs
* Worship and the High Church Parties
* Culture, Ecclesiology and Architecture
* Worship Between the Two World Wars
* The Ecumenical and Liturgical Movements
* Into Postmodernity and the Present

Illustrated with contemporary images this study breaks new ground and fills a notable gap in liturgical history as it traces worship in transition in changing cultural and ecclesiastical contexts.
