"The procession is led by many devotees in blue cassocks, bearing, 
for their saint, very beautiful old gilt Venetian lanterns on long 
poles, enormous banners of crimson, gold-edged and tasselled, and 
rows of huge candles, crowned with gold and wreathed with gay ribbon 
streamers, each candle in its leather baldric making a strong man's 
burden with frequent changes."

"The procession is led by the religious novices clad in blue cassocks 
and carrying Venetian lanterns on long poles; they are followed by 
banners, heavy and tasselled, and rows of candles crowned with gold 
and trailing streamers. These huge pieces of wax are carried in a 
leather baldric -- slung, as it were at the hip."

Okay, which one was written by Durrell?
