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)

Michael Dansicker : 16-Bar Theatre Audition Tenor

Review: Most large audition calls for musical theatre, both professionally and in larger school situations, specify that those auditioning bring in a "16 bar" excerpt.

With this new series, that problem is solved forever! Editor Michael Dansicker, a composer/producer/music director, is a seasoned musical theatre veteran, with 100 Broadway credits. He brings his expertise and broad knowledge of the literature to this series. Each excerpt has been given a thoughtful, graceful and effective form. No more illegible scribblings for the poor audition accompanist! An enormous variety of literature is represented, from old standards to movie songs to the latest Broadway and Off-Broadway material. With 100 songs per volume, any singing actor, whatever his or her talents and strong suits, will have many choices. In the preface, the editor gives valuable pointers on the nature of a good audition and some factors in choosing songs.

Various : The Oratorio Anthology

Review: This is the most serious and useful collection yet published of solo arias from oratorios, masses and cantatas. The literature was confined to work by major composers, and by-passes the dated oratorio literature found in previous collections. The most famous music is here, and so is interesting and less famous music by masters. There are new music engravings for each aria, and extensive historical notes and translations. Solo instrumental obbligato parts, which can be cut from the book, are included on appropriate selections.

Songlist: Quia fecit mihi magna from Magnificat (C.P.E. Bach), Deposuit potentes from Magnificat (Bach), Benedictus from Mass in B minor (Bach), Ach, mein Sinn from St. John Passion (Bach), Geduld, Geduld from St. Matthew Passion (Bach), Frohe Hirten, eilt, ach eilet from Christmas Oratorio (Bach), Meine Seele ist erschüttert from Christ on the Mount of Olives (Beethoven), Te ergo quæsumus from Te Deum Laudamus (Bruckner), Sanctus from St. Cecilia Mass (Gounod), Gentle airs, melodious strains! from Athalia (Handel), The enemy said from Israel in Egypt (Handel), Waft her, angels from Jephtha (Handel), Sound an alarm! from Judas Maccabæus (Handel), Comfort ye, my people; Ev'ry valley shall be exalted from Messiah (Handel), Behold, and see if there be any sorrow; But Thou didst leave His soul in hell from Messiah (Handel), Thou shalt break them from Messiah (Handel), Total eclipse from Samson (Handel), Hier steht der Wand'rer nun from The Seasons (Haydn), Mit Würd' und Hoheit angetan from the Creation (Handel), Fac me cruce custodiri from Stabat Mater (Haydn), If with all your hearts from ELIJAH (Mendelssohn), Then shall the righteous shine forth from ELIJAH (F.

G. Schirmer Opera Anthology : Diction Coach - Arias For Tenor

Review: Diction lessons on each aria in the series recorded by top language coaches from the Metropolitan Opera and the Juilliard School plus International Phonetic Alphabet and word for word translations. With these book/CD packages that match the standard aria collections edited by Robert L. Larsen, any singer anywhere has access to the best diction coaching available at a very affordable price. Each aria is recorded twice. In the first version the coach recites the text as an actor would speak it, showing flow of the language and the mood. The second version is a slow, deliberate lesson, allowing time for the student to repeat each line. These experienced language coaches adapt the "R" in German and French in the slow versions for singers. They also are very sensitive to liaisons between word sounds in the musical settings. The book includes International Phonetic Alphabet for each aria and word for word translations. The native speaking professional diction coaches from the Metropolitan Opera and the Juilliard School are: Corradina Caporello for Italian, Pierre Vallet for French, Irene Spiegelman for German, Kathryn LaBouff for English, Yveta Synek Graff for Czech, and Gina Levinson for Russian.

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.
