Vestments for Masses of the Dead

Only rarely has the Studio produced vestments for Masses of the Dead, specifically, black vestments. Recently, however, four sets of vestments in the Saint Philip Neri style were completed for one priest in USA.

Details of this unusual commission with further photographs will be described in subsequent posts.

The vestments depicted adjacent are made of a silk damask, ornamented simply with outline braids in the Roman style and lined in crimson dupion silk.
