On Good-Friday we went to the Convent of S. Radegunda, where we heard an excellent Chorus of the Nuns, at the receiving of the Crucifix: they sung it on their Knees at the Entrance within the Convent, while a Priest held the Crucifix at the Door. The Nuns had lighted Tapers in their Hands, and wore black transparent Veils. The Abbess took the Crucifix; and the rest follow'd in procession into their Choir behind the Church. Here they sung their Hymns and Anthems, which we heard in the Church. Among the rest, the admirable Guinsana signaliz'd herself, who has been famous above these thirty Years; and continues still to charm, unseen. Two other Nuns in this Convent, Palazza and Doria, are likewise much esteem'd for their Voices, and fine Manner of Singing.
