Richard Bxter sounding a little higher up the candlestick than we might imagine

"Another part of our work [as ministers] is to guide our people, and be as their mouth in the public prayers of the Church, and the public praises of God; as also to bless them in the name of the Lord. This sacerdotal part of the work is not the least. A great part of God's service was wont in all ages to consist in public praises and eucharistical acts in the Holy Communion"

The Reformed Pastor, ed. J. T. Wilkinson London, Epworth Press, 1932, p.82 quoted in Cocksworth and Brown, Being a Priest Today, p.3o
