The Choir Hoodie
« on: September 09, 2018, 09:26:34 PM »
As a spin-off from the Klobuk/Fez thread, I'm interested in information on the choir hoodie. What is its origin, development and meaning? When was it last used (the Fall of Constantinople?) and how does it relate to the dome-shaped white hats also seen in that video?

It's hard to find anything via Google, since I just get that other article of clothing called a hoodie.
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Bump.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

The extent of my knowledge is that it was the imperial uniform for chanters. The multi-colored costume was for those singing melos (the melody) and the white was for those singing the isokratima.

Makes sense.

The more I think about it, the more I wonder if it was primarily just for visibility and distinguishabiltiy across the crowded cathedral, smoky with incense.
