another bass

I'm another bass... It seems we now have too many basses and baritones! Some of us will have to sing countertenor just to balance things out :p
I have a very bright timbre though, I sound like a tenor. Which is good, as it's just the voice I wanted when my voice started to drop :) I would love to sing, but I don't have a great voice. My vocal role model would be this bass:

( he's singing the death scene in Boris Gudunov )

I love low bright voices like his. Also I like the high dark voices you get in most mezzos and contraltos, and some sopranos ( like Rosa Ponselle ).

PS; DW, you have over three octaves! I'm impressed!

I'm a soprano, but I can sing really really low as well.

Our "member-choir" now: 3 sopranos, 1 Alto, 2 Tenors and 7 Baritons/Basses, and 1 other voice.

Friends, we need mor Altos and Tenors! And some sopranos would be also good! We have a big "bass-ground" now :D

Actually, as long as your basses sing well (rhythmically clean, and good pitch) so that the bottom is not 'muddy', I like the sound of a choir which has more men than women; acoustically, the bottom strengthens the upper voices, and it can actually sound in better balance than many choirs which have 'even distribution'.

Cheers,

You can be also alto in our "member-choir". So we would have 2 altos, but I think you voted for soprano ;). Anyway, some more altos would be nice.

P.S. my first statement that I am a tenor with tendency to bariton should be corrected. I think I am more a baritone, would be a choir-bass but can getter higher more easily than lower.

I'm an odd one: technically, my voice sounds as if it has broken, and I can sing a G on the bottom line of the Bass clef, but I can still sing all the treble notes in a non-falsetto voice. My highest note is a D a couple of octaves above Middle C.

I sing bass in a barbershop choir (i do enjoy other music aswell but me and my friend both agree, barbershop is the best none tutorial vocal training you can get and when those chords ring, you feel like you want to marry music!) i have a real problem with my range, i can't reach above a middle c! it really bums me out cos all my bottom notes down to bottom Bb (2 8ves below mid c) are good but my high notes suck. It does however mean i have a good falsetto so if u really need a counnter tenor i could try!
PS, if anyone can help me in finding and developing head voice for use in choral singing, speak (or sing) now!

Last time I sang in a choir I sang tenor. I believe it takes a real woman to sing low. I've sung alto and sop as well; I pretty much go where I'm needed. (In various choirs I've now sung four out of six parts of Byrd's Sing Joyfully . . . just need to pick up Sop 1 and Bass).
