I have read, over a decade ago, in "Orthodox Tradition, published by the Center For Traditionalist Orthodox Studies, in Etna, California, that black is not appropriate in Greek practice, except for Holy Table clothes or other places cloths may be used in the church, on Great Friday, (during the day, i.e. Royal Hours and during the Unnailing Service). I don't recall whether the article commented on the color of the priest's vestments.
By the way, you (all) know that colors are a later part of the Second Millennium development; they were never traditionally prescribed. Correct?
An aside; only last year did I become aware that in Greece, and apparently in Greek practice in the US, blue is the common color for vestments at the Salutations to the Theotokos Service; one of her colors. Previously, I thought the purple for Great Lent was the standard for this service. Any comments on this? I'm sorry if it appears I'm changing the topic. I do not mean to do that.
