No, choir dress is not low church

... a perfectly correct choir habit, which had come down to them from the Middle Ages - a long surplice, a hood, and a black scarf ... We shall make a great error if we give up this choir habit of surplice, scarf, and hood, which is a valuable witness to the continuity of the English Church.

From Percy Dearmer, Loyalty to the Prayer Book (1904).
