Advent Blue II
I couldn't resist posting some of SarumSleuth's photos of the glorious Advent blue high mass set at Primrose Hill in London. St Mary's, Primrose Hill is Percy Dearmer's church and the flagship of the 'English Use'. The vestments were probably made in the first years of the twentieth century during the early years of Dearmer's incumbency. The vestments are made of stamped silk velvet with no orphreys,offset with a lining of Sarum red linen. Very sumptuous they are too. BTW does anybody know where I can get dark blue stamped velvet?
