On appropriate Chanters' and Readers' attire

A picture paints a thousand words. The Great Church of Constantinople exemplified simple and demure choir dress for its chanters and readers. See the picture of members of the Romeiko Ensemble above for an image of appropriate chanter- and reader-wear from fourteen hundred years ago.
(And I thought my skouphos looked snazzy!)
