Samuel Pepys in Whitehall - 29 June, 1668

from Diary of Samuel Pepys, 29 June 1668, page 931:

[T]o the Chapel, it being St. Peter’s day, and did hear an Anthem of Silas Taylors making - a dull, old-fashion thing of six and seven parts that nobody could understand; and the Duke of York, when he came out, told me that he was a better store-keeper then Anthem-maker - and that was bad enough too.
