We attempted to study the hitherto unexplained phenomenon of the sung “
a”, for one note, at the end of an “ A” melody. We encountered this issue during singing the word “Alleluia” in the Coptic musical culture. We found that the transmission from “ A” to “ a” serves as an intermediary step before continuing to the “L”. It may also be an adopted habit by some singers, rather than a consistently inherited musical design with a clear pattern. However, further research is encouraged to decipher this phenomenon.
