The Alb is one of the liturgical vestments of the Roman Catholic, Episcopal, Anglican, Lutheran, and many Methodist churches, is an ample white garment intended to cover secular clothing. The hem is typically at the ankles and is usually girdled with a cincture. As a simple derivative of ordinary first-century clothing, the Alb was adopted very early by Christians, and especially by the clergy for the Eucharistic liturgy. Today, the Alb is the common vestment for all ministers at Mass, both clerics and laypersons, and is worn over the Cassock and under any other special garments, such as the Stole, Dalmatic or Chasuble. If the Alb does not completely cover the collar, an Amice is often worn underneath the Alb. The Cosgrave Company offers a vast selection of Albs from quality suppliers from the US and Europe.
