When Common Worship was introduced, a need for a serious and scholarly commentary on the whole range of its texts became apparent. A Companion to Common Worship provides an historical survey of the origins and development of many rites from New Testament times, through the Middle-Ages and Reformation, up to the present day. The parts of each rite are examined in a detailed commentary that includes a comparison with the ASB and other contemporary liturgies, followed by a short list of books for further reading.It is suggested that the service might begin in the church or chapel (rather than at the graveside), and if it does so, the first part of the service ... Then comes the Committal, before which a small procession to the grave may be necessary. ... An Outline Order for a Memorial Service CWprovides an outline order for a service, together with one within a celebration of the Eucharist, and then one sample form .
