Barbershop Harmony

Barbershop harmony is a style sung in cappella and unaccompanied by music. The Barbershop Quartet is a group of four singers with each having their own part to sing. The lead sings the melody, the tenor harmonizes above the melody, the bass sings the lowest harmonizing notes, and the baritone completes the chord. Listen to some Barbershop music with these titles from our digital collections.
