Vestments for Lent: IV
A priest from Trenton, New Jersey (USA) commissioned the Saint Bede Studio to prepare a Solemn Mass set for the season of Lent, comprising several chasubles and dalmatics. The principal chasuble was prepared in that style referred to as semi-conical: a modified cut of the ancient shape of the chasuble. The photograph above shews the particular way in which a conical or semi-conical chasuble folds up from the lower edge of the vestment when the arms are raised: a very beautiful effect.
One of the dalmatics is also shewn, ornamented more simply, but with the same scheme.
