Did you know…
The first four centuries of Christianity did not involve a special robe, tunic, vestment or other garb for members of the clergy, nor presumably for choirs used in a religious setting or otherwise. Tunics remained the primary article of clothing, typically knee-length to ankle-length, usually with a cincture. Often, an additional article of clothing known as a himation was worn. This was rectangular, and wrapped around ones body over the tunic. Himations came in various colors, qualities, and designs dependant on occupation, gender, and status. There is no evidence that the himiation became a clerical vestment.
Over time clergy vestments became richer and made of costlier materials, and beauty played a larger role in church garments. It is unknown if choirs of this time followed suit, though it seems likely.
