Note-When any of the services in these tables clash, it is intended that No. 4 shall give way to No. 3 ; that they both give way to No. 2, and all three to No 1. Ministers and Precentors should be careful to attend to this simple rule, to avoid disorder.*

St. Michael and all Angels. In these Tables I have endeavoured, with a very few, but excellent materials, to do all they admitted of, to supersede the regret expressed by Archbishop Whately, and several other great authorities in the Church, that our Festivals are not more distinguished in the Liturgy ; I have, as the reader will observe, intended, in arranging the Services, to make them in keeping with the day. Except of arrangement, and leaving out the obsolete Benedicite, and putting in the Miserere and De Profundis instead, there is here no change. However, the reader cannot fairly judge of all my reasons, perhaps, till he gets to the Communion Service.
