"That good youth, recognizing the dangers in which he was involving himself in so perilous a journey, declared at his departure that the desire of serving God was leading him into a country where he surely expected to meet death." — Fr. Jerome Lalemant, speaking of St. Jean de Lalande

Giovanni Doni is known for having changed the name of note “Ut,” renaming it “Do.” He convinced his contemporaries to make the change by arguing that 1) “Do” is easier to pronounce than “Ut,” and 2) “Do” is an abbreviation for “Dominus,” the Latin word for the Lord, Who is the tonic and root of the world. There is much academic speculation that Giovanni Doni also wanted to imprint himself into musical canon in perpetuity because “Do” is also ulteriorly an abbreviation for his family name.
— Giovanni Battista Doni died in 1647AD

• Organum comitans ad Epitomen e Graduali romano = Orgelbegleitung zum Auszug aus dem Graduale der vatikanischen Choralausgabe • Organ accompaniments by August Wiltberger and Carl Wiltberger • Volume III: Common of the Saints (“Commune Sanctorum”) {vol. 1 is Proprium de Tempore, vol. 2 is Proprium Sanctorum} • 1910 Düsseldorf : L. Schwann • This is an organ accompaniment to the COMMON OF THE SAINTS (not the PROPRIUM DE TEMPORE or PROPRIUM SANCTORUM, which were also produced). Contains unusual harmonies (like picardy thirds), and “German” treatment of spondee’s and dactyl’s. •
