2.mus.01 Ut queant laxis

From the first syllables of the verses of this hymn is taken the name of music notes in modern notation, a fact made ​​by Guido D’Arezzo in the eleventh century. Guido d’Arezzo used the first syllable of each verse except the last: ut, re, mi, fa, sol, la. Centuries later, Anselm of Flanders introduced the name si for the missing note, combining the initials of Sancte Ioannes.

San Juan.

In medieval music, the Guidonian hand was a mnemonic device used to assist singers in learning to sight-sing. Some form of the device may have been used by Guido d’Arezzo, a medieval music theorist who wrote a number of treatises, including one instructing singers in sightreading.  In teaching, an instructor would indicate a series of notes by pointing to them on their hand, and the students would sing them. This is similar to the system of hand signals sometimes used in conjunction with solfege.
