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.

published 24 June 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

Bishop Gracida spoke to Mother Angelica for 60 minutes about the Church teaching on Divorce & Remarriage. You can obtain a copy of this DVD from EWTN.

Deep down, most of us feel that we’re eminently articulate. However, when we see ourselves on camera we are quickly cured of this notion! Bishop Gracida comes across very well on that video. Maybe somewhere along the line during his interesting life he was given some television tips!
