A Black Cope

The vestment described in this post was commissioned together with a number of other vestments for a Latin Mass Community in Brazil.

The cope is extremely simple, but derived from the Roman style of ornament of the 16th century. A black damask was used for these vestments, ornamented with silver braids and lined in charcoal-grey taffeta.
