Archdiocese of Dublin

Some months ago, an English priest resident in the Archdiocese of Dublin  commissioned the Studio to make a set of vestments for use in his Parish, based on the familiar pictures of Saint Philip Neri.  The result  is shewn in the picture  at the left.  This chasuble is of ivory and straw ecclesiastical brocade and is ornamented with another brocade in burgundy and gold.  The effect is very rich.

The Saint Bede Studio developed its own interpretation of this 16th century style of chasuble, based upon extensive research, but adapted for modern use.  It is not an attempt to exactly reproduce 16th century exemplars.  This Saint Philip Neri chasuble has proved a particularly popular style with young priests.

Ad majorem Dei gloriam.
