Re: music from the eton choirbook review
I thank Brian Wilson for his response, but he does not however support his assertion with documentary evidence; again it is mere conjecture. My quote from Morley should be applicable as there is no source that contradicts it. However, a closer source, Sir Thomas More 1516 talking about singing says, '.....dothe so resemble and expresse naturall affections, the sound and tune is so applied and made agreable to the thinge, that whether it bee a prayer, or els a dytty of gladnes, of patience, of trouble, of mournynge, or of anger: the fassion of the melodye dothe so represente the meaning of the thing, that it doth wonderfullye move, stirre, pearce, and enflame the hearers myndes.'
