We sing a cappella (without musical accompaniment) in harmony produced by four parts: lead, tenor, baritone and bass. There is a part for any voice range it’s a case of finding the right part for your voice.
Which Part Would I Sing?
Lead: Mid-ranged singing voice and will often sing the melody (the tune). This part is
sung in the range between A below middle C, and C above middle C. A good lead
singer must be able to keep in tune, as the other parts tune their notes to the
leads, so if the lead goes flat, everyone goes flat!
Tenor: The highest singing voice and usually sings a harmony above the Lead. This part is sung in the range from G above middle C to high F on the top line of the clef.
Baritone: Mid-ranged singing voice similar to the lead. The baritone part provides harmony
notes, sung below and above, across the melody. It has often been commented that the baritone members sing the left-over notes! But this is not true it is an interesting and challenging part like the others.
Bass: The foundation of our chorus and the lowest of the singing voices, able to sing the
Eflat below middle C.
