Lavish, frankly, is all we can say. Here is the scarlet red velvet biretta as worn by the Provost of Paderborn Cathedral, adorned tastefully as it is with scarlet velvet.
Many of the dear sisters would be grateful of a hat of such virtue; the convent gas metre has seized up in the freezing cold, and won't even admit the fifty pences from last years lent boxes. We wonder if Paderborn cathedral ever had problems with the heating, thus necessitating a toasty warm biretta for its hierarchy?
More sumptuousness to follow tomorrow.
