A KIND OF MUSIC

January 31, 2013

“….The goodly sweet and continuall brayings, whereof they form a melodius and proportionable kind of musicke.  Nor thinke I that any of our immoderate Musicians can deny but that their song is full of exceeding pleasure to be heard: because therin is to be discerned both concord, discord, singing in the meane, the beginning to sing in large compasse, then following into a rich fall…to hear the musicke of five or six voyces changed to so many of Asses is amongst them to heare a song of world without end.”

                                                           From, The Noblenesse of the Ass,  16th Century

  EQUUS ASINUS (The Donkey) : The hoarseness of its voice, or bray, depends upon two small peculiar cavities situated at the bottom of the  larynx.
