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

New Microphone
published 3 January 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

I WAS GIVEN a new microphone by a generous person, and here’s a test recording. For years, I’ve been making sacred music recordings—but from now on I will use this microphone.

Can you hear the difference? I am excited!

Please do let me know your thoughts in the Facebook combox—thanks!


I hope to replace all the recordings on the Goupil Website now that I have this better microphone—but that could take quite a while!
