Songbooks for Tenor Voices

The name "tenor" derives from the Latin word tenere, which means "to hold". In medieval and Renaissance polyphony between about 1250 and 1500, the tenor was the structurally fundamental (or holding) voice, vocal or instrumental. All other voices were normally calculated in relation to the tenor, which often proceeded in longer note values and carried a borrowed Cantus firmus melody. Until the late 15th-century introduction of the contratenor bassus, the tenor was usually the lowest voice, assuming the role of providing a harmonic foundation. It was also in the 15th century that "tenor" came to signify the male voice that sang such parts. Thus, for earlier repertoire, a line marked 'tenor' indicated the part's role, and not the required voice type. Indeed, even as late as the seventeenth century, partbooks labelled 'tenor' might contain parts for a range of voice types. In four-part choral music, the tenor is the second lowest voice, above the bass and below the soprano and alto. The range of the choral tenor is generally not as great as that in opera, however.

While certain choral music does require the first tenors to ascend the full tenor range, the majority of choral music places the tenors in the range from approximately B2 up to G4. The requirements of the tenor voice in choral music is also tied to the style of music most often performed by a given choir. Orchestra choruses require tenors with fully resonant voices, but chamber or a cappella style choral music can quite successfully rely on light baritones singing in the falsetto. Although vocal range is the primary characteristic which defines a tenor, it is not the only. A tenor is ultimately classified by several vocal traits, including range, tone quality, vocal lift points, and transition points ("passaggio") within the singer's range. It is generally recognized that the average transitional area, or passaggio, of the tenor begins with a lift around middle C or C# and ends with a lift at F or F# above that (Alderson 1979). In non-professional choirs, individuals will generally be classified based on their most resonant and comfortable tessitura. In the Barbershop harmony musical style, the name "tenor" is used for the highest part. The four parts are known (lowest to highest) as bass, baritone, lead, and tenor. The tenor generally sings in falsetto voice (thus the term tenor used in barbershop terminology most closely corresponds to the term countertenor as used in classical music), and harmonizes above the lead, who sings the melody. The barbershop tenor range is, as notated, Bb-below-middle C to D-above-high-C (and sung an octave lower)

Joan Frey Boytim : The First Book of Tenor Solos Part II

Review: There has been widespread accceptance by teachers and students of 'The First Book Series,' so it was only natural that there would be a 'Part II' book compiled. The Part II books follow many of the same concepts which are covered in the Preface of the original volumes, including a comprehensive selection of between 34 and 37 songs from the Baroque through the 20th Century. The selections range from easy to moderate difficulty for both singer and accompanist. At the request of the students and teachers, there are more sacred songs, and two Christmas solos have been added to each book. Also included are two enhanced CDs, giving you the ability to not only play the accompaniments on both your CD player and computer, but they are also CD-ROMs that are capable of playing the tracks at different tempos and in different keys when played on the computer.

Songlist: Farewell , To The Beloved, Ave Maria , The Birthday Of The King , Good-Morning Sue , The Cloths Of Heaven, Tender Ties , Down By The Sally Gardens , Du Bist Wie Eine Blume , Everyday Is Ladies Day With Me , Fame's An Echo , Forget Me Not , The Fishermaiden , In A Foreign Land , Incline Thine Ear , It Was A Lover And His Lass , A Kingdom By The Sea , Linden Lea , Love Quickly Is Pall'd , My Lovely Celia , Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen , O Come O Come My Dearest, O Del Mio Amato Ben , On Richmond Hil There Lives A Lass , Panis Angelicus , Phillis Has Such Charming Graces, Russian Picnic , Sea Fever , Sonntag, Hark!

Joan Frey Boytim : The Second Book of Tenor Solos Part II

Review: More great classical material for progressing vocal students, from the leading American expert in teaching the young voice. The series started with The First Book of Solos, and then, at the same difficulty level, came The First Book of Solos - Part II. The Second Book of Solos, originally released in 1993, is for singers who have taken voice a little longer and are capable of more challenges, but is still decidedly student-level material, and music that can be sung by good high school students. The new The Second Book of Solos - Part II set is at exactly the same level as The Second Book of Solos. It shares the same features: a deliberate variety of music in different styles and languages, including a few sacred selections, with over 30 songs per book. Also included are two accompaniment CDs that are presented in book order. This edition is for Tenors.

Songlist: A Chloris, As Ever I Saw, By The Sea, Cabin, Canzonette, Cieco Si Finse Amore, Le Colibri, Delizie Contene, Che L'alma Beate, He Counteth All Your Sorrows, In Der Fremde, Let's Take A Walk, Mien Schoner Stern!, My songs Sheall rizeed, Nell, O lord thou hast searched me, O Waly Waly, Oh Gentlemen Listen I Pray, Le Papillon, Per formare la beta, Piggesnie, The Poets Life, En Priere, Reward, Schafers Klaglied, Silver, Strictly Germ-Proof, Strings in the Earth and Air, Then Shall the Righteous Shine Forth, Under the Greenwood Tree, Verdi quel ruscelletto, Viens aurore, Wndmung, Youth

Most of the tempos are moderately fast. The ranges are very accessible with a top F for the tenors and only a few high E-flats for the baritone / basses. 21 songs in English for progressing singers

Ferdinand Sieber : Vocalises - Tenor

Review: The Sieber Vocalises: It is important to know why Sieber is so good for the voice. He was a Viennese, Italian-trained voice teacher who knew the importance of vowel alteration and its role in keeping the balance of the registers. The Sieber Vocalises are designed to balance the registers using 8 measure melodies based on the Italian syllables da, me, ni, po, to, la, be. The register balance is achieved in the ingenious way Sieber arranges the syllables. Again, his goal it to allow the space of the open vowels in the closed vowels, and the ring of the closed vowels in the open vowels. Lindquest called these vocalises the 'bridge between vocalizing and singing music'. In my 25 years of teaching, I have never found a singer that the Sieber Vocalises did not help tremendously. Thirty-Six Eight-Measure vocalises for Tenors, complete with solfege.
