The fall of Anderida was sung by our own gleemen and recorded by our own chroniclers.
Not only the gleemen sang, but the harp went round, and all who could did so.
"Ay, and was so yesterday," he says, for so the songs of his gleemen tell him night after night.
Along with the gleemen went the glee maidens, who were the dancing and acrobatic girls of the day.
So there were many gaily-dressed tumblers and dancers, jugglers and gleemen, each with a crowd round them.
The clerks and gleemen, however, and even English peasants of modern times, took another view of the matter.
To the right, upon a green mound of waste, within sight of the populous bridge, the gleemen were exercising their art.
There is a curious series of grotesque heads on the arches of the nave showing the mummeries of gleemen.
Our gleemen now stepped into the breach with "Ye Banks and Braes," and we left the station amid cheers.
Then was fighting such as the gleemen sing of, with the light of the red fire waxing and waning across the courtyard the while.
