Cappa Minor

Cappa Minor is a small cape or tippet covering the shoulder. These capes or tippets are commonly worn abroad over the surplice, and are regarded as a necessary part of the choir habit. They were anciently worn in the English Church, and are still ordered by the seventy-fourth of the canons of 1603. The incongruous and absurd mode of wearing mutilated hoods and tippets, hanging round the neck by a ribbon and falling down the back, is a modern innovation, dating from the 17th century.
