Example text

The first payment for a Prologue is in 1573 and it is so unusual, or special, that the name of the actor (George Loe) is given. A further revision occurs in 1576 when the Deadman is introduced. 574. in 1550 God and the Mother of Death were entered as a double role, though on those occasions the actor added the 4d. received for the Mother of Death to 1s. 4d. for God and received 1s. 8d. The 10. "Between the stages" is the usual phrase in the Drapers', Weavers' and Smiths' accounts. 31 R. W. Ingram awkwardness of assessing the purpose of the Mother of Death's role is increased by the fact that in two years ( 1540 and 1543) her part was apparently cut from the performance.

On Candlemas (February 2) that year the Cappers had an unusually grand entertainment which seems to have been dramatic in form. The relevant items in the account read: Itm payed for the soteltys on Candelmas daye Itm payd to Robert Crowe for Goldenflece Itm pd to John Crowe and Wyllyam Iynes for the same Itm pd to the syngers on candelmase daye vj• xx• xiij• viijd iiijd xxd 6. These wages were set in a time of economic unrest. It is not possible to suggest standard wages for Tudor England; at different times and in different places they varied considerably.

79b). There follow the usual payments for two rehearsals but no other pageant expenses are listed. Either the pageant, after great preparation, was not given (other companies performed theirs) or, for some reason, production costs were not entered. One possible explanation is that the very large payment to Horseley was made for his painting and for his acting as pageant-master that year. It is a possibility I do not accept. Civic reiterations that pageants must be played might argue that occasional nonperformances by guilds were not unknown.
