Revision, undertaken by Cranmer, resulted in the Prayer Book of 1552, which showed the influence of foreign reformers then resident in England, for it made possible a wide diversity of views regarding the Eucharist, all justified by this official service book.
In 1927 a revised form was submitted to Parliament, whose approval was (and is) still required, and passed by the House of Lords but rejected by the Commons; it was resubmitted (with certain modifications) in 1928 and again rejected.
Nonetheless, the revised prayer book was quite widely adopted in the Church of England with episcopal approval.

 "Arblaster On Celtic Christianity" (The Prayer Foundation)
I am not putting forth Celtic Christianity as some panacea of perfection; it is a process and a tool for overcoming that which may be more dangerous than Viking raiders--our modern culture.
It must be admitted that not all aspects of Celtic Christianity could, or even should, be followed today, but it does offer much we may appropriate as an arsenal to combat the cultural seduction of our time and affections.
In our regular prayers we are often guilty of rushing through into specific requests of God with what is a cursory, but perhaps not very deeply felt, introductory acknowledgement of thanks to Him for His greatness.
