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

Sacra Liturgia USA 2015 — New York City
published 31 May 2015 by Fr. David Friel

omorrow begins Sacra Liturgia USA 2015, an international conference on liturgical formation in light of the New Evangelization. I will be present at the event and will try to offer a few real-time reports on the experience here on Views from the Choir Loft.

Last month, I posted an brief mention of some of the speakers we will hear this week. I also encourage you to check out the full schedule, posted HERE.

On the conference website, you will find a detailed introduction to each of the speakers. The schedule further includes the titles of the talks to be given.

With gratitude to the organizers of this conference, I pray that its proceedings will be a blessing to the Church in America and beyond.
