The event is said to have taken place on the Sunday before Candlemas. The account cannot be taken as an accurate one of 1377.The instruments Stowe mentions would have been familiar to him in the early seventeenth century. The book of Daniel (5) mentions cornett and sackbut which may have led him to believe that the sackbut existed in the fourteenth century.
