Where does the term Solfeggio come from? Today Solfeggio is a singing technique used to teach music students how to recognize musical intervals. We are all familiar with the Solfeggio scale either from singing it in elementary school music class or from popular songs like Do Re Me from The Sound of Music. C, D, E, F, G, A, B.... Do, Re, M,i Fa, So, La, Si.
The Christian roots of Solfeggio go back to a Gregorian Chant titled The Hymn to St. John the Baptist, written by Paul the Deacon in the 8th Century A.D. The hymn contains the original Do Re Mi although in those days it was Ut Re Mi. Ut was changed to Do in the 1600s and the change from Sa to Si is lost to antiquity.
