De Tibia. cap. 137.

Or els as Hugution saith, this name Tibia com∣meth of Tibin, yt is a rush or a réede, for of certaine reedes, such an instrument was made in old time: & thereof is said hic Tibicē, on, he yt plaieth on such pipes And was somtime an instrument of so∣row & lamentation, which men did vse in office & sepultures of dead men, as the Glose saith super Mat. 9. Cum audislet tibicines,* that is the fingers of dole and of lamentation.
