The white alb ("L'aube blanche"), especially among French-speaking people, is the vestment worn at the time of concerts of sacred musics or of religious offices. In Quebec
the tradition is the same one as in Belgium and France. The Petits Chanteurs du Cap de la Madeleine (close to the town of Three-Rivers) wear white albs with a wodden cross.
L'aube blanche, surtout chez les francophones, est le vêtement liturgique
porté lors de concerts de musiques sacrées ou lors d'offices religieux. Au Québec (Canada) la tradition est la même comme en Belgique et en France. La photo, venant des petits chanteurs du Cap de la Madeleine, (près de la ville de Trois-Rivières), porte une croix un peu plus grande.
We do not know what the choir costume was for secular performances.
