We are a mixed voice choir in three parts, with the top two being female and the bottom one male. The voice names and normal ranges are given below.
- Highest note F one octave and a perfect fourth above middle C.
- Lowest note A a minor third below middle C.
- Highest note D one octave and a tone above middle C.
- Lowest note G a fourth below middle C.
- Highest note D one tone above middle C.
- Lowest note Ab one octave and a major third below middle C.
Please note that we call the male part the bass part simply because it is the lowest part in the choir, but the actual range does not have any really low notes, or any really high notes, and is intended to suit the ranges of both basses and tenors. If you think you are a tenor, please don't be put off by the fact there is no tenor part as such - it is very likely that the male part will be in your range.
Musical arrangements will avoid extremes of range in all parts, although there might be the very occasional note that falls outside the guidelines given above.
See the Music page for details of some of the songs to be performed.
The choirs have their own particular sound. Smooth, velvety and easy to listen to. If you are unsure as to whether your voice will fit in, don't worry. We'll teach you some techniques to help you produce the right sound to blend in with the other singers in Remix Voices.
All singers in Remix Voices will need to have, or develop, the ability to:-
- sing in tune without vibrato
- blend their voice in with other singers' voices
- learn and memorise melodies
- learn and memorise harmony parts
- learn and memorise lyrics
