A detailed knowledge of Greek hymnody enables Litvack to comment perceptively on Neale's skill as a translator, and the problems he faced in rendering the rhythms and conventions of Greek hymnody into English idiom and metre."--Ecclesiastical History
"Litvack's writing is clear and precise, presenting a fascinating picture of one of England's foremost ecumenical figures, liturgical scholars, and hymnists of the nineteenth century. I highly recommend this book."--Southwestern Journal of Theology
"Litvack has provided a well-written...interpretation of Neale's endeavor to further the cause of the sobornost
"...this study deserves to be in any respectable collection of Anglo-Catholic literature. It is sound, thorough, and extremely valuable."--Angelican and Episcopal History
"[A] fascinating book."--Times Literary Supplement
