“I know well that when divers men and women will go thus after their wills, finding out one pilgrimage, they will ordain to have with them both men and women that can well sing wanton songs; and some other pilgrims will have with them bag-pipes; so that every town that they come through, what with the noise of their singing and with the sound of their piping and with the jangling of their canterbury bells and with the barking of dogs after them, they make more noise than if the king came with his clarions and many other minstrels.”
