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

Brilliant Idea for A Parish Fundraiser
published 13 September 2015 by Fr. David Friel

HIS JUST IN from the Catholic Memes page on Facebook. Those in search of a promising parish fundraiser might take their lead from a Protestant congregation that has crafted an inventive new feature of their music program.

(N.B. Please understand that this post—and I presume this congregation’s fundraiser—are meant to be lighthearted.)
