Interesting variations in present Royal Arch Chapters
By Neville Barker Cryer – 27 minutes
NBC looks at two variations in our ceremonies as practiced in different parts of the English Constitution.
First he considers variations in the opening of a Chapter by reference to the workings in three Chapters, one consecrated in 1822, one in 1911 and the third in 1948. He explains how these Chapters enter and open the Chapters in a variety of what we would consider as novel ways and how they share the word and unveil the Pedestal.
He then considers three variations in the Ceremony of Exaltation by reference to Chapters in West Lancashire, Cambridge, Exmouth and Portsmouth.
And Freemasons sometimes complain of a lack of variety That myth is exploded in this presentation.
