Thanks for this info, Rick. This was just the kind of thing I'm looking
I've heard that on the occasion of the king's visit, the LG community
produced a harmony of the gospels, bound it themselves, and presented it to him.
I think these days it's in the British Museum.
Thanks again for the help.

anything of that nature?
This isn't exactly what you are looking for but
it might be useful.
Taken from http://www.littlegiddingchurch.org.uk/lgchtmlfiles/lgpeople2.html
Early in 1936, on one of the poet's visits to the Society of
Sacred Mission at Kelham Hall in Nottinghamshire, he
was asked to read
and criticise the manuscript of a verse
play written by one of the
members of this Anglican
religious community, Brother George
Every. The play,
entitled Stalemate-the King at Little Gidding dealt
the visit of King Charles 1st in May 1646. Eliot was
in the idea of Christian Community as the ideal
of the Christian life,
and had read about the Ferrars in
earlier years: possibly 'John
Peckard's Life: both volumes were in his library.
By the way, the
Little Gidding Church is a wonderful little site.
then there is the Church of Saint Michael, East Coker http://www.findagrave.com/pictures/1631.html
