Not really English but the old roman style that religious wore, without the pom-pom. The English biretta has a tassel. Franck Quoex favoured this style and the English style.

An Oratorian?

it is correct to say it is english in that it belongs to an english cleric. however, the english biretta with a tassel is in fact a nineteeth century roman biretta taken at the restoration of the hierarchy in england in 1850.

Just as this biretta can be of Spanish style and at the same time belong to a German cleric fostered in Italy at a French speaking seminary. :)
