The Don Cossack Choir was renowned for the quality of the tenors and baritones and for the depth and resonance of the low basses. Every member of this choir was and is trained in a classical or operatic way. The singers can reach sheer power without using amplification. Also the voices have different timbres for different volumes. When singing forte a pure operatic bass baritone and tenor voice is achieved with extreme loudness and brightness in the voice.
An outstanding feature are the tenors singing in head voice in a soprano range but another feature of this choir is it sings in a unit. The voices have a very good balance throughout the entire singers. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
