“Moveable Do” syllables are (melodic) scale degrees, that is, intervals from the tonic (reduced modulo the octave). The “tonic Sol-Fa method” was codified and disseminated by John Curwen in the 19th century. However, the idea dates back to the “octave species” of medieval modal theory (and ultimately Greek theory).   Eytan AgmonBar-Ilan University
