If voices are used in the piece:

  • What kinds of voices are they? (Men, women, children? Tenors or basses? Professional singers, music students, amateurs?
  • What do the voices do? Do they sing, chant, recite, yell, hum?
  • How would you describe the tone quality of the voices? Operatic, growly, nasal?
  • To what extent are these answers typical of this type of piece? (For example, could a female voice be used instead of a male? Is yelling expected or unusual in this music style?)
  • What are the constraints of using a voice in this way? (For example, what is the range of a professional tenor voice, or the capabilities of young student singers?)
