WHAT DOES DA CAPO MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Da capo

Da capo is a musical term in Italian, meaning from the beginning. It is often abbreviated D.C. It is a composer or publisher's directive to repeat the previous part of music, often used to save space. In small pieces this might be the same thing as a repeat, but in larger works D.C. might occur after one or more repeats of small sections, indicating a return to the very beginning. The resulting structure of the piece is generally in ternary form. Sometimes the composer describes the part to be repeated, for example: Menuet da capo. In opera, where an aria of this structure is called a da capo aria, the repeated section is often adorned with grace notes. Variations of the direction are: ▪ Da Capo al Fine: repeat from beginning to the end . ▪ Da Capo al Coda: repeat from beginning to an indicated place and then play the tail part. D.C. al Coda is a musical direction used in sheet music. It literally means, "da Capo al Coda," or "from the head to the tail". It directs the musician to go back and repeat the music from the beginning, and to continue playing until one reaches the first coda symbol.
