A capella

Postby William Hupy » Thu Mar 09, 2017 12:14 pm

From Italian, through which all things music derive, for alla capella, in the manner of the chapel. In turn from the Latin for little cape, which provided sanctuary, as the legend goes, for a beggar provided a cloak by a Roman soldier in Gaul. Later honored as St. Martin, the patron Saint of France.
