Five soprano singers were recorded while singing similar texts in both choir and solo modes of performance. A comparison of long-term-average spectra of similar passages in both modes indicates that subjects used different tactics to achieve somewhat higher concentrations of energy in the 2- to 4-kHz range when singing in the solo mode. It is likely that this effect resulted, at least in part, from a slight change of the voice source from choir to solo singing. The subjects used slightly more vibrato when singing in the solo mode.
