This week’s Word of the Week is musical themed in celebration of the company of actors and musicians joining us at the Globe in preparation for Gabriel.

Word of the Week: ‘Ut’ (n.) – (musical scale) doh (Holofernes singing) Ut, re, sol, la, mi, fa

[Reads] ‘”Gamut” I am, the ground of all accord-
“A re” to plead Hortensio’s passion-
“B mi” Bianca, take him for thy lord-
“C fa ut” that loves with all affection-
“D sol re” one clef, two notes have I-
“E la mi” show pity or I die.’
Call you this gamut? Tut, I like it not!
Old fashions please me best; I am not so nice
To change true rules for odd inventions.
[Bianca] The Taming of the Shrew III.I
