Can't recall how Cyril tawney pronounced th line, but a lot of the old boys pronounce "hoist" as in bank heist...which would sound pretty much like highs when sung:the t would get lost between the two s's.There's still plenty ofpeople in England who pronounce boil and oil as bile and that old American usage as well?
