Note: This art was practiced by the Greeks; but six of the
seven syllables now in use are generally attributed to
Guido d' Arezzo, an Italian monk of the eleventh

[1913 Webster] Professor Skeat says the name of the
seventh note, si, was also formed by him [Guido] from

syllable do is often substituted for ut.
