[+] Howie, Alan Crawford. "The Sacred Music of Anton Bruckner." Ph.D. diss., University of Manchester, 1969.

Information on stylistic borrowing, such as the Viennese Classic style and church music, is located in the preliminary section of this dissertation. Specific information about Bruckner and the Caecilian movement (pp. 29-37) focuses on Bruckner's attitude toward the movement. Details of specific stylistic borrowing and quotation appear from page 270 to the end of the dissertation, including an exhaustive list of borrowings from Bruckner's own sacred music in his symphonies (pp. 289ff). Howie maintains that Bruckner's sacred music is shrouded in spiritualism and symbolism without sacrificing the composer's unique and eclectic compositional style.
