Velvet voice contralto. What is the main secret of his popularity

Contralto is one of the brightest female voices. Its velvety low sound is often compared to a cello. This voice is quite rare in nature, so it is very appreciated for its beautiful timbre and for the fact that it has the lowest notes for women. HOW AND WHEN A CONTRALTO IS FORMED This voice has its own characteristics of formation. Most often, it can be determined after 14 or 18 years. The female voice of the contralto is mainly formed from 2 children: low alt, which from an early age has a pronounced chest register or soprano with an inexpressive timbre.

Songs of bondage, prisons and penal servitude: from Pushkin to the Circle

Indestructible pity, “mercy for the fallen”, including even the most inveterate robbers and murderers, gave rise to a special song layer.

So, during a brief house arrest, the poet created one of the poetic masterpieces – The Prisoner. Continue reading

What is a znamenny chant: meaning, history, types

Russian church music began with the famous chant that arose during the baptism of Russia. Its name is associated with the use of special notation signs – “banners” for its recording. Their intricate names are associated with a graphic image: a bench, a darling, a cup, two in a canoe, etc. Visually, banners (aka hooks) are a combination of dashes, dots, and commas. Each banner contains information on the duration of sounds, their number in a given motive, the direction of the melody and the characteristics of the performance. The intonations of the znamenny chant were acquired by the singers and parishioners of the church according to rumors from the masters of znamenny singing, since the banners did not record the exact pitch of the sound.
