Using the text from Susan Roth's children's book, this oratorio tells the story of Guido d'Arezzo who discovered a better way than the tradition of learning music by rote. He invented a system of music notation, which, though modified, is still in use today. The music is based on the original Gregorian chant which was the first piece of music Guido notated.
