Edward Clark et al. in London - 19 April, 1928, at night
from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 17:
There was a wireless in the restaurant, and we listened to a very good Blues. I thought how close the analogy is between Jazz and plainsong: both so anonymous, so curiously restricted and conventionalised, so perfectly adapted to their metiers, both flowing with a kind of devout anonymity.
