Abu Salamah Khuzaa‘ee (rahimahullah) mentions:

Whenever Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) intended to go and narrate the Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he would first perform wudhu, as a person performs wudhu for salaah. He would also wear his best clothing, wear a topi and comb his beard. When somebody asked him the reason for this, he replied, “I do this to honor the Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).”

(Tahzeebul Kamaal 27/110)

Ma’n bin ‘Eesa (rahimahullah) narrates:

When Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) would intend to sit and narrate the Ahaadeeth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he would first take a bath, burn bukhoor (incense) and apply ‘itr. If any person raised his voice in the gathering of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah), he would stop him and say, “Allah Ta‘ala has mentioned:

یٰۤاَیُّہَا الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا لَا تَرۡفَعُوۡۤا اَصۡوَاتَکُمۡ فَوۡقَ صَوۡتِ النَّبِیِّ

O you who believe! Do not raise your voices above the voice of the Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

Hence when a person raises his voice before the Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), it is as if he has raised his voice above the voice of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).”

(Tahzeebul Kamaal 27/111)

Note: Some narrations mention that Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) would perform wudhu before narrating Hadith, while other narrations mention that he would take a bath. Perhaps Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) would sometimes take a bath, while at other times, he would suffice on making wudhu.
