Wherevpon the archbishop taking counsell with his fréends, deposed Syluester the prior, and sus|pended William the secretarie of the house from en|tring the quéere.

For it was thought reason, that whilest other sang and were merrie, they should keepe silence, which wilfullie tooke vpon them to sing, whilest other held their peace and were still. They began therefore to cease from saieng diuine seruice, and from ringing their bels in the second wéeke of Lent: & so kept silence from the twelfe day of March, vntill the first day of August.
