Notes & Reviews:

Julie Andrews frolicked across the Alps singing it in The Sound of Music and generations of children have learnt their musical scales by remembering it. Now Do-Re-Mi has been traced back more than 2000 years to one of the greatest poets of ancient Rome. It was penned as a mnemonic by a medieval Italian monk who drew on a melody which accompanied Horace's Ode to Phyllis, written in the 1st century BC. From Professor Andrew Wallace-Hadrill Director, British School at Rome "With brilliant detective work, Stuart Lyons unravels the musical character of Horace's odes and traces a remarkable link between Horatian music, Guido d'Arezzo and the discovery of do-re-mi."
