Contact: Domenico Cogliandro. It is merely Vicentinos way of distinguishing between choral singing and the normal practice for madrigals of no more than one singer to a part.
The musical resources of the Roman basilicas did not go beyond 16 or 18 singers, including the three or four boys who took the cantus part. The only physiologically reasonable explanation for this remark is that choral singers must have compensated for the imbalance between their small number and the need to fill the church with sound by means of a vocal technique which involved enough of an active contraction of the vocal cords and probably also of muscles outside the larynx to hamper their agility in the bass tessitura.
One of our most important sources of information about Renaissance vocal techniques is a letter on singing addressed by Camillo Maffei to the Count of Alta Villa and published in Naples in At one point Maffei says, for instance, that the place where passaggi are produced is that very one in which the voice is formed; 10 and vocal agility does in fact depend upon the ability of muscles within the larynx to modify rapidly the tension of the vocal cords. The sensation is well known to experienced singers. Even a sceptic, however, must grant the value of Maffeis quite precise statements relating to articulation.
Two of these occur amongst Maffeis rules on the singing of gorgheggi:. The sixth rule is that the tongue is distended in such a way that the point arrives [at] and touches the roots of the lower teeth. The constancy of this position of the tongue in the pronunciation of all the vowels is indeed indispensable to any singer who wishes to match the welldifferentiated mouth formants of speech so that the words can be understood without sacrificing a modicum of constancy in the throat formants for a homogeneous timbre.
This is a particularly important rule for camera singing in what Monteverdi was to call the seconda prattica that is, music in which the text is of primary importance. The seventh rule is that the mouth be kept open, and properly no more than that which it is kept when one reasons with ones friends. Again this refers to camera singing, which is relatively quiet, and enables the singer to produce vowel sounds similar to those of speech. Giorgiones Il cantore appassionato illus. In another set of rules Maffei includes a discussion of some of the Italian vowels:.
The fourth rule is that one more readily does passaggi upon a word or syllable that carries the [Italian] letter o in the mouth with the passaggio than upon the other letters; and in order that this rule be better understood I now declare that the vowels as everyone knows are five, among which the one that sounds like oo carries a terrifying tone to the ear. And the one like ee if carried in a passaggio represents a little animal that goes about whining for its lost mother; yet one can concede that with the soprano the passaggio with ee is less ugly than with the other voices.
The other remaining vowels can be carried without scruple, yet making comparison among them I say that o is the best, because with it the voice is rendered more round, and with the others, not only is the breath not united so well, but also passaggi are formed that resemble laughing; yet not being too strict with this rule I leave it to the singers good judgment. One could dismiss as curiosities Maffeis choice of o as the best vowel for passaggi, instead of ah, and his descriptions of the oo and ee sounds. But a more coherent interpretation is that being Neapolitan he took for granted that forward position of the jaw which favours o and shades the ee sound in a typically Neapolitan way just enough to make his picturesque description feasible.
Anyone who reads the whole letter can tell that it is about camera singing. In another letter Maffei showed himself aware that cappella singing was different when he remarked that un'altro non vorrebbe sentir se non passaggi di garganta, un lodar il cantar dolce, e soave, un'altro il cantar nella cappella. Some would wish to hear only passaggi di garganta; some praise sweet and suave singing, some cappella singing. Part 3, chapter 46 of Gioseffo Zarlinos Istitutioni harmoniche Venice, includes a discussion of singing.
Zarlino is explicit about the two vocal techniques:. Zarlinos remarks about safeguarding the clarity of the poetry complement those of Maffei:. So Zarlinos observation of poor madrigal singing, when taken together with our depictions of exemplary singing with the jaw forward and with Maffeis sixth rule that the tongue remain in contact with the roots of the lower front teeth , gives us a coherent and fairly precise indication of camera technique.
In his Prattica di musica Venice, Ludovico Zacconi, like Zarlino a generation before, distinguishes explicitly between soft camera and loud cappella singing:. He criticizes unduly soft as well as unduly loud singing, but is particularly sensitive to the harsh or should we call it brilliant? Si guardi ancora, di non seguitare quel si da buoni biasmato stile, di cantar si forte, che piu forte cantar non possa. Be alert also not to follow that style, condemned by good singers, of singing so loud that one couldnt sing louder. Et quelli che si ritrovano in luoco ove convengano gridar forte, avertino d'intonar le figure giuste, allegre, con voce ne forzata ne men lenta; ma con tanto quanto la natura li concede: perche la forzata voce essendo deffettuosa sempre offende.
And let those who find themselves in a place where it suits their interests to cry out loud take care to sing the notes correctly and gaily, and with a voice neither forced nor slow; but with such strength as nature grants them, because a forced voice, being defective, always offends. Similarly, in singing high notes quietly one should not force them if they do not come out conveniently; because it is better to fake or omit them. Zacconi was a remarkably thorough writer, and his discussion includes the following references to techniques of breathing:. Two things are to be sought in whoever wishes to follow this profession: chest and throat; chest in order to be able to carry to their proper termination Here the term petto chest seems clearly to refer to the singers respiratory capacity that is, how much breath he can muster.
But Zacconi also uses another term, fiancho literally, flank , and here I think he is evoking the sensation of work that is felt at the level of the last pairs of ribs when the belly muscles make a real contribution to the control of ones respiration in singingwhich is something quite distinct from though of course related to the quantity of breath.
For reasons too elaborate to set out here, 19 the effective use of these muscles is a technique indispensable for mastering the art of gorghe and passaggi. At the same time it is a technique ignored by Garcia, who speaks exclusively in terms of making the fontanella the front muscles between the chest and belly, where the ribs divide re-enter. In both camera and cappella techniques the position of the larynx seems to have been quite free, and there was nothing of that dark and dramatic timbre which in Romantic techniques is achieved by keeping the larynx so low that the tongues ability to differentiate some of the vowels is rather hampered.
A certain degree of rounding in the vowels was achieved by keeping the jaw somewhat forward and, according to Maffei, the tongue always in contact with the lower front teeth. This contributed to homogeneity of timbre without limiting the singers ability to project the different vowel sounds. In camera singing the clarity of the vowels was further helped by not opening the mouth much more than in speaking. In cappella singing the mouth was opened wider for a bigger sound: the slight loss of clarity in the vowels was no doubt less damaging in liturgical music, where the listener was likely to know the words already and so needed only to recognize them, than it would have been in madrigals and dramatic music, where the poetry was, at this point in the history of Italian music, often of paramount importance and extraordinary quality.
At the same time, the timbre of cappella singing probably sounded less homogeneous, in one important sense, than that of camera singing, because it was sufficiently loud and energetic to include some brilliant or harsh harmonics in the frequency range, above 3, Hz, where the ear is particularly sensitive and where an infants squalling is concentrated.
Cappella singing was basically full voiced and forte in character though never stentorian , and our concept of a cappella music should be in keeping with this fact. The dynamics of camera singing ranged freely from pianissimo to forte or in modern terms mezzo forte. Its expressivity was often so intimately bound up with the timbres and sentiments of Italian poetry that the effect would have been quite lost in the acoustics of a large church.
The expressive resources of a cappella music, on the other hand, were more a matter of such compositional features as elegant cadences, finely constructed lines and sophisticated placing of imitative entries and changes of texture: the singers main task was to project these features by means of good phrasing and agogics, subtle rhythmic licence, and relatively moderate shadings of loudness and timbre. It is no accident that the church exalted Palestrinas style more than Victorias, even though Victorias music was on the whole more warmly expressive.
One often associates dramatic intensity with loudness, but for Renaissance singing the equation has to be reversed. Camera singing was more dramatic than cappella singing because singers who were not obliged to use an active contraction of the vocal cords in order to make themselves heardnot even when changing to the upper part of their rangecould manipulate their voices with more suppleness for agility in melodic embellishments which were one of the principal means of expression in secular music, but unwelcome in liturgical music and also for dramatic shadings of timbre, vibrato and dynamics.
