When you love someone, you lavish attention. You provide the best and the beautiful.
In Madison that is what we are trying to do with Holy Mass. Our Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison (please donate! – 501(c)(3)) has been slowly building a treasury of vestments. This week I used for the first time the new Low Mass and Sung Mass set in green. I am loath to pull pieces out of larger sets on a regular basis. That way you wind up with worn chasuble and fresh dalmatics, etc.
And the church was pretty full, with new faces too.
You will want to know who made these vestments. It was NOT Gammarelli, in Rome.
I am very pleased with them. I think I will use this source again, happily.
There is a lady in Sardinia with a cottage business called
I contacted her after browsing photos of what she had made in the past, asking for an estimate for the set in green. She responded quickly – you can write to her in English. Her estimate was well within the budget I had set. She was able to make some adjustments to the patterns according to my specifications. I sent some money up front using PayPal so that she could get the fabric and trim, etc. Badda bing! She had the production of the vestments underway in no time. Shipping was not a problem. She was must faster than I had anticipated.
All in all, these are high quality and beautiful and they won’t break your bank account. I was delighted with what I used today. I think I will make a few other adjustments for future orders (and I anticipate that there will be some).
The cope laid out before Mass…
