Read Our Bios!
Although we list our voice types in a modern way, to give listeners some
idea of who does what, before the baroque period the human voice was used
in a variety of ways, without reference to what we think of today as
formal vocal training, and some of our earlier repertoire, as well as the
less formal styles of ballad and catch tune, require some unusual
sonorities. From earliest times human beings have imitated the sounds we
hear around us. Our vocalists often sing on a part somewhat different
from their "soprano, alto, tenor, bass" labels, and they sometimes imitate
one or more of our instruments, or the sounds of birds or animals, where
the repertoire calls for it.
