Our four parts are named differently than traditional choral music. They are Tenor, Lead, Baritone, and Bass. Here's how they compare:
Lead: Similar to choral First Tenor, although some Second Tenors sing Lead. This part is primarily the melody.
Baritone: Similar to choral Baritone, although some Second Tenors sing Baritone. This part primarily harmonizes between the Bass and Lead.
Bass: Nearly identical to choral Bass.
Tenor: This part sings harmony above the Lead. It is typically higher than choral First Tenor. Many sing this in their falsetto and head voice, although a counter-tenor might sing in a head-chest mix with some falsetto.
