Our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath lefte power to his Churche to absolue all sinners, which truely repent and beleue in hym: of his great mercy forgeue thee thyne offences: and by his autoritie committed to me, I absolue thee from all thy synnes, in the name of the father, and of the sonne, and of the holy gost. Amen.
Such is the form of Absolution in the Book of Common Prayer of 1549, and in its subsequent English recensions. S John Henry Newman, naughty man, in his Apologia pro Vita Sua, used it ad hominem to taunt Evangelical critics of 'Auricular Confession'.
(When the Church of Ireland was disestablished, it seized the opportunity to discontinue this form. It wished also to eliminate from the formula of priestly ordination "Whose sins thou dost retain" etc.: but the lawyers explained that this omission might give rise to questions in law about whether Irish ordinations would be considered valid in the Church of England. ... BTW ... Rumour has it that the post-Conciliar Roman Pontifical has indeed scratched out that formula ... surely not ... whatever would Leo XIII, author of Apostolicae curae, have said!! Not to mention dear Cardinal Vaughan!)
What strikes you as unusual about the 1549 wording of the Absolution?
The priest absolves the penitent from all his or her sins. Roman forms, both old and new, tend not to specify all. But all goes back to the pre-Reformation English rites, such as that of Sarum.
I think quite a number of ex-Anglicans have noticed the less explicitly complete and generous wording of the Roman forms! Strange that PF never spotted it, what with Mercy and all that stuff a few years ago.
Personally, I do rather like the (Pre-Bugnini) Roman form. I positively wallow in that lovely rounded phrase in quantum possum et tu indiges.
And the remission of censures, etc.. The delicious ancient legalism of Roman Christianity (vide Christine Mohrmann) shines very nicely through.
Anyway ... I think the Ordinariates should resume the historic Anglican, and ancient English Catholic, form. Or, if they don't, ex-Anglican confessors could emphatically insert the word ALL!
