Samuel Pepys in London - 2 April, 1667

from Diary of Samuel Pepys, 2 April 1667, page 748:

Then to the office, where all the afternoon was very busy; and in the evening, weary home; and there to sing, but vexed with the unreadiness of the girl's voice to learn the latter part of my song ['It is decreed'], though I confess it is very hard half-notes. So to supper and to bed.
