The term “tessitura” refers to all the sounds that can be expressed by a particular voice in a homeogenous manner. Four main categories define the different vocal typologies. Soprano represents the highest tessitura of all. More often than not, it is comprised of female or children’s voices. Female voices in the lower range are called altos. Tenors represent the highest pitch of the male tessitura. A baritone has a range that falls beneath a tenor and is the most common type of male voice. Finally, a bass voice represents the deepest of the four pitches. Within the chorus, they form the harmonic foundation of the ensemble.
