  1. Philip M. McGhee says:

    Re; proposed funeral for Richard III, Properly,it should be done accoring to the Sarum Usage of the Roman Liturgy,which was in use in England until 1549 and again during the Marian Restoration. It is somewhat a prolix rite,interesting enough without genuflections. I have looked at some of the texts, and wound up sympathizing with Cranmer,,there was more trouble finding out what to do rather than actually doing it. (Cf. Preface to 1549 Prayerbook)
