Collection: Choir Surplices & Cottas

Choir surplices are an essential part of liturgical attire, traditionally worn by choir members during religious services. If you're looking for a square or rounded or square neckline surplice or cotta that would look great worn over your choir cassock, you've found it. The history of the surplice dates back to the Middle Ages when it was worn by priests as a symbol of purity and simplicity. Over time, the surplice became an integral part of choir attire, and today it is still widely used in churches and cathedrals around the world.

At Churchings, we understand the importance of liturgical attire in religious services. We offer a wide range of choir surplices made from high-quality materials that are designed to enhance the overall appearance of your choir. Our surplices are available in different styles and sizes to meet the needs of different choirs.

One of the most popular styles of choir surplice is the traditional full-cut surplice. This surplice features wide sleeves that extend down to the wrists and a full cut that falls just above the knee. The traditional full-cut surplice is made from high-quality cotton or polyester, which provides comfort and durability to the wearer.

Another style of choir surplice that is gaining popularity is the Roman-style surplice. This surplice features a narrower cut that falls just below the knee and has shorter sleeves that extend to the elbow. The Roman-style surplice is often made from a lightweight and breathable fabric that is ideal for warmer climates.

At Churchings, we also offer the cotta-style surplice. This surplice is similar to the traditional full-cut surplice but has a shorter cut that falls just below the waist. The cotta-style surplice is often used by younger choirs or for informal services.
Our choir surplices are available in a variety of sizes, from small to extra-large, to fit choir members of all sizes. We also offer custom sizing options for those who require a surplice that is tailored to their specific needs.

In addition to our standard choir surplices, we also offer a range of accessories that can be worn with the surplice to enhance its appearance. These accessories include collars, cuffs, and lace trims, which can be added to the surplice to give it a more decorative look.

At Churchings, we are committed to providing our customers with high-quality choir surplices that are made to last. Our surplices are designed to withstand regular use and are easy to care for. They can be washed in a regular washing machine and dried on a low heat setting, making them ideal for busy choir members who need to quickly clean their attire between services.

In addition to their practicality, choir surplices also have a rich symbolism that is deeply rooted in Christian tradition. The white color of the surplice is a symbol of purity and innocence, while the wide sleeves represent the wings of the Holy Spirit. The full-cut of the traditional surplice is also said to represent the seamless garment worn by Jesus Christ during his crucifixion.

Overall, choir surplices are an essential part of liturgical attire that add a sense of reverence and solemnity to religious services. At Churchings, we offer a range of choir surplices that are made from high-quality materials and are designed to meet the needs of different choirs. Our surplices are easy to care for and are available in a range of sizes, making them ideal for choir members of all ages and sizes. Whether you are a small church choir or a large cathedral choir, we have a surplice that will enhance the overall appearance of your choir and help you to create a memorable and meaningful worship experience.
