|Ss Peter and Paul 2008.|
The 2008 cope matched the vestments used on Pentecost of the same year, as shewn in post 7 of this series.
The 2010 cope is more modern in appearance, but employing somewhat distinctive fabrics. A crimson red damask is used, which has a woven design carried in a contrasting colour: a very muted gold. The ornament is formed from parallel lines of a wide galloon in silver and gold. In one photograph, splendid dalmatics worn by the Cardinal-deacons are shewn.
Several photographs of these vestments are included here, because of their great beauty.
