Vestments for Masses of the Dead

The Saint Bede Studio has recently completed this Low Mass set called Absolve which is intended for Masses of the Dead. This set is made from dupion silk and lined in olive green cotton. It is ornamented with a black and straw-coloured brocade depicting the Crucifixion. The chasuble is made according to the dimensions set down by Saint Charles Borromeo in 16th century.
