The Relationship Between Physical Analysis of Sounds and the Auditory Impression of Their Vowel and Tone Quality in Tenor Singing
500 sustained vowels from a variety of tenor singers have been analysed by the Sonagraph. From these analyses it has been possible to derive a correlation between the physical and auditory characteristics of sung vowels. The study covers the normal fundamental frequency range of the tenor voice, and a wide variety of different voice qualities commonly heard from tenors. Of particular interest are the spectral changes noted in the region of the upper tenor ‘break’, and these are discussed in relation to vocal tract shape and size.
