There are 5 main vocal categories and descriptions that belong specifically to the classical world, and they are as follows:
Let us look at each of these in bit more detail:
A light voice is describe as light, fresh and youthful, a sweet voice of fun, with a bit of funny.
A Lyric voice is able to sing long and even, medium. A sympathetic but acrobatic voice.
A Full voice is one which is louder and stronger. A heavy slow voice.
A dramatic voice is the most powerful. A voice of strength. A voice which carries.
A Coloratura voice is flexible, a fast running voice.
Classical music requires at least one of the voices listed above, but more importantly, voice combinations create the many voices that exist in classical music today.
