The Barbershop Quartet
Volume 1 & 2
Sing along to "the songs that made America a singing nation"
The Barbershop Quartet is a professional, fully featured music program containing all-time favorite Barbershop songs and an interactive multimedia history of Barbershop singing in America. We've recorded each voice (tenor, lead, baritone and bass) on a separate track, allowing you to listen to each part independently. Powerful multimedia features let you study the arrangements, hear the music, and sing along with a top Barbershop Quartet. Made with the assistance of the Barbershop Harmony Society (formerly SPEBSQSA), the leading authority of Barbershop in America, this interactive program contains nearly an hour of high quality vocal music plus a fascinating history of Barbershop quartets and 'the songs that made America a singing nation'. With seamlessly integrated MultiTrack audio, MIDI, chord symbols, lyrics, and music notation, The Barbershop Quartet turns a typical sound card equipped PC into a vocal performance powerhouse.
