This recital, which is at first slow, becomes more and more rapid, until you can only distinguish the syllables il and lah.
The major third from doh to me seemed easier than that from fah to lah, and so on.
The next notes of the scale to be taken are ray and te, then fah and lah.
They should then sing the phrase once through to lah, and write it down.
"I have th' lah gr-rip," said Mr. Dooley, blowing his nose and wiping his eyes.
The class sings it through twice, first using the Sol-fa names for the notes, then singing to lah.
lah is affixed to words of all kinds, sometimes merely for the sake of euphony, but more frequently as a particle of intensity.
Thus, first say la knabo (lahk-nah'bo), and gradually drop the "lah," until finally knabo can be said without difficulty.
