Also, it is ordained that each novice and brother of the said scuola who is in Venice during the aforesaid feasts and solemnities is required, with good manner and dress, to assemble in the street of the Millanesi.  And there each should have a wax candle in his hand and then [all] depart from that street with four trumpets and with trumpets and drums with two double flutes ["ciaramelle"] and with such solemnity and celebration as possible, as deemed appropriate by the priors and deacons serving in that year.
