Henry Stephen Cutler (1824-1902) was known for serving in New York City churches and especially for bringing
the idea of using men and boys and choir vestments to this country. He had seen the effects of The Oxford Movement in England
while visiting there and worked to share this with American churches. Moderately easy.
