The Season "Per Annum"

The adjacent photographs shew a set of vestments completed for a priest of the Archdiocese of Sydney in the Saint Martin style developed by the Saint Bede Studio.  The chasuble is made from a forest green brocade and ornamented  with a rich burgundy and gold contrasting brocade in the Roman style.  Unlike other examples of the Saint Martin chasuble, these vestments lack any additional ornamenting galloons.  To enhance the appearance of the chasuble, however, Crosses in green, straw and red have been added as applique to the orphrey.  The vestments are fully lined in a rust-red cotton.
