It is a little known fact (yes; this one of my even-more-than-usually pompous pieces) that in the 1940s and 1950s, there was a vigorous episcopal attempt to kill off the Tridentine Rite, and especially the Canon Romanus, in the (many) Anglo-Catholic churches of the Diocese of London. Here is an account (1956) of that period from a priest (Hugh Ross Williamson) who witnessed it.
"The Vicar of All Saints, Margaret Streety, was the Rev. Cyril Tomkinson, whom I had known very well since 1926 when he was a curate of Little St. Mary's at Cambridge. Cyril ranked with the present Bishop of London and Gregory Dix as one of the three wits of the Church of England; but he was a 'Protestant -in-chasuble' par excellence and refused to allow me to say even a private Mass at All Saints--'because, my dear, you'll use that horrid Roman book and the rule here is music by Mozart, choreography by Fortescue, decor by Comper, but'--his long forefinger wagged roguishly and his voice became solemnly emphatic--'libretto by Cranmer.'"
