Arthur has recently started blogging. I very much hope he will write something about what was actually practiced in England as the changes happened in due course.
Meanwhile a rather interesting post on the pre-Conciliar stages of the reform can be found here. I think I can honestly claim to be the person who alterted Arthur to H.A. Reinhold's fascinating book. I would, with due respect, suggest Arthur has a few dates out and some of the changes he describes happened earlier e.g. bidding prayers appeared in the 1965 Ordo Missae (there is a clue for the Competition still waiting serious entries!)
At the start of his post Arthur writes:
The reform of the Roman Liturgy, which had been substantially unchanged from the time of St Gregory the Great (Pope from September 3rd 590 to March 604), began much earlier than the Second Vatican Council and indeed had nothing to do with that Council.
I couldn't agree more.
