Samuel Pepys in London - 13 November, 1664

from Diary of Samuel Pepys, 13 November 1664, page 442:

Lords day. The morning to church, where mighty sport to hear our Clerk sing out of tune, though his master sits by him that begins and keeps the tune aloud for the parish. [...] In the evening, to sing psalms; and in came Mr. Hill to see me, and then he and I and the boy finely to sing; and so anon broke up after much pleasure.
