from A London Provisioner's Chronicle, 1550-1563:

The eighth day of June came a goodly procession unto Paul's and did oblation at the high altar of St. Clement's parish without Temple Bar, with eighty banners and streamers, and the waits of the city playing and a sixty copes and priests and clerks and divers of the Inns of the Court went next the priests. And then came the parish with white rods in their hands. And then marched back again, with the waits playing and the priests and clerks singing, homeward.
