Secondary, a clerk who, if learned and expert in music, was eligible for promotion, by the dean, to the place of vicar. He was the carton's personal attendant, and sat in the secondary row of stalls: hence his name. At Chichester the secondary sang the daily mass of requiem in the Lady-chapel. It was also a technical term for a cathedral dignitary of second rank and posi-tion — a minor canon, precentor.
