Wikia


This is a page created by C.Syde65 which attempts to cover basic descriptions on the vocal ranges and classifications of some of the male musicians and singers, both past and present.

I, C.Syde, have been reading information about the classifications given to some male musicians and singers on various pages on various sites, such as List of tenors in non-classical music and List of baritones in non-classical music from the Wikipedia.

After reading some of the information on those pages and sites, I was inspired to make a list of some of the male singers and musicians, past and present, along with the vocal classifications that I have given them, or have officially been given. Note that this page is still under construction and will be expanded and revised over time.

Singers / Musicians with a Counter Tenor / Tenor Vocal Range

Singers / Musicians that I consider to have a counter tenor or higher tenor vocal range. Note that some of the people I classify to be a low-range counter tenor may sometimes sing within the higher-range of a tenor and vice-versa.

Highlighted dark red names indicate that the Singers / Musicians are no longer alive. † indicates that it has been debated what the Singer's / Musician's voice type is.
