From the Bishop of St Asaph
Sir, - I am grateful to Canon Palmer for his elegant and
concise answer concerning the wearing of the stole over the
chasuble (Out of the Question, 7 February),
but could you please forward this answer to all known television
and film production companies?
Whenever the BBC or ITV show a cleric in vestments, almost
invariably the cleric is wearing the stole over the chasuble - and
they're not chasu-albs either. It is also true of numerous films,
and always causes a passing frisson of annoyance when I see it.
