Need the parsing for:-

Educated top Anglicans act out church music - PLAINSONG (Church music)

Tense girl, nearly drunk, honest - TRUTHFUL (Honest) If 'Tense' is 'T' and 'Girl' is 'Ruth' then where does 'Ful' come from? It's not part of ('Nearly') any term meaning 'Drunk' that I can think of.

FUL(l)? I'm not convinced about "tense" for "T" really, so it could be something else entirely.

In Scotland, 'full' means drunk(inebriated etc) - so 'nearly drunk' gives 'ful'.

Thanks guys. Chris, could you elaborate a bit further re 'Plainsong'. I don't understand your answer.

TOPANGLICANS - take out ACT, then anagram what you have left.

'top Anglicans' minus the three letters of 'act' gives (t)op (A)ngli(c)ans.
make an anagram of these remainding letters for the answer
