A Cappella? Is That How You Spell It?
The phrase a cappella is among the most butchered and misunderstood musical
terms. The predominant, and most "correct" spelling, is ...
a cappella - two words, two "p\'s", two "l\'s."
A Cappella, A Picky Definition
Musicologists have fun debating the extent to which a cappella, \'in the style of
the chapel,\' can include instrumental accompaniment. Some argue that early
sacred a cappella performances would sometimes include instruments that double a
human voice part. So, the correct definition of a cappella should be something
like \'singing without independent instrumental accompaniment.\'
At Primarily A Cappella, we are trying to popularize this style of music, so we
like to keep it simple.
a cappella - two words, two "p\'s", two "l\'s."
singing without instruments
Some musical dictionaries indicate that the Italian a cappella is preferred over
the Latin a capella (one "p") yet both are technically correct. Why do those
dictionaries muddy the waters with two spellings?
The phrase was first used in Italian Catholic churches, where Latin was the
language for sacred text. Thus, the Latin spelling for \'in the style of the
chapel\' - a capella - has some historical basis. However, most other musical
terms - forte, accelerando, and many others - are Italian in origin. Since the
Italian spelling is more consistent with other musical terms, it has been used
Given the difficulty of spelling our favorite style of music, we\'d like to
endorse the simplicity of a single spelling:
a cappella - two words, two "p\'s", two "l\'s."
singing without instruments
Joining the two Italian words together to make Acappella is a popular variation
in the U.S. For many streetcorner singing fans, Acappella means unaccompanied
singing of \'fifties (and early \'sixties) songs. There were a series of
recordings released in the early 1960\'s of Mid-Atlantic unaccompanied doo-wop
groups called "The Best of Acappella." The liner notes on the first LP noted
that Acappella means "singing without music." In this matter we do tend towards
being picky - instruments do not alone music make! A cappella (or Acappella)
singers make music while they are ...
singing without instruments
A more recent, second meaning of Acappella has emerged. The Contemporary
Christian group Acappella is the first formed by prolific songwriter Keith
Lancaster. In the early 1990\'s he added Acappella Vocal Band (now mostly known
as AVB) and "Acappella: The Series" which uses studio singers (plus LOTS of
electronic help) to perform songs around specific themes. All of these efforts
are now combined in The Acappella Company. The good news is they have sold
millions of recordings and have contributed greatly to the awareness of a
cappella. The bad news is they have popularized a spelling variation, and
through the heavy use of electronically manipulated voice (which can sound like
any other synthesized instrument) have chipped away at the idea of ...
singing without instruments.
This spelling is totally wrong, and yet has been used by those who should know
better. The most prominent occurrence is on the re-release of first album by the
Singers Unlimited. Originally titled "Try to Remember," this very popular
collection of vocal jazz arrangements by Gene Puerling has no doubt led some to
misspell, or at least question the correct spelling of ...
a cappella - two words, two "p\'s", two "l\'s."
singing without instruments
The Manhattan Transfer sang a song with this title on their debut, eponymous
album. Ironically, the whole song is accompanied, as are most of their songs by
this group, so one can only guess at the intended meaning. The lyrics
"Everything\'s gonna be mellow, Listen while we sing it occapella" precede a
refrain of scat-like harmony (with the band receding into the background but
Also ironically, The Manhattan Transfer are often the group music lovers think
of when they hear the phrase "a cappella." Many people associate "close harmony"
with "a cappella," which certainly makes a great deal of sense. Popular
twentieth century a cappella is characterized by extensive use of close harmony
- when voices separated by small intervals (seconds, thirds, fourths) sing the
same rhythm and words. The Manhattan Transfer sing great close harmony, but most
of it includes instrumental accompaniment. Only a handful of their dozens of
songs are performed a cappella.
The Blenders open their second album "From the Mouth" with a schtick by this
title. On this brief cut, the group is trying to discuss their new recording
with an unenlightened agent, who keeps referring to the style of \'Oxapello.\'
Hopefully the next time you run into someone similarly confused, you\'ll remember
to politely tell them:

Man Of La ManchaMan Of La Mancha Man of La Mancha is the story of Alonso Quijana, a poor gentleman from Spain. He has read so many of the exaggerated romances of chivalry that he finally believes them to be his reality and sets forth as Don Quixote, a knight-errant on his old horse seeking many misadventures.

My Summer OffMy Summer Off My Summer Off Memory can be so fickle.

Porgy and BessPorgy and Bess Porgy and Bess symbolizes the end of the black musical tradition that flourished in the early part of this century. The play showed the height of white appropriation of what had previously been a black cultural form. All the creative talent backstage was white.

Porgy and Bess became a black musical in its most minimal sense, only as a defin

Robert BurnsRobert Burns Robert Burns is a man of the most impassioned temper; with passions not strong only, but noble, and of the sort in which great virtues and great poems take their rise. It is his love towards his country, people, and nature that inspires him. That opens his eyes to its beauty, leading his heart and voice to praise them with his passion. Robert Burns was born January 25, 1759, in a straw-thatched cottage, to William and Agnes Burns. His mother had a great store of folklore songs and b
Romantic sonnetsRomantic sonnets The Romantic sonnet holds in its topics the ideals of the time period, concentrating on emotion, nature, and the expression of nothing. The Romantic era was one that focused on the commonality of humankind and, while using emotion and nature, the poets and their works shed light on people’s universal natures. In Charlotte Smith’s Sonnet XII - Written on the Sea Shore, the speaker of the poem embodies two important aspects of Romantic work in relating his or her personal feel

Samuel Taylor ColeridgeSamuel Taylor Coleridge Samuel Taylor Coleridge, to those who know and understand his poems well, exists in three modes, as Philosopher, Poet, Friend. If the truth were told, we should all be obliged to admit that the Philosopher escapes us. It is the opinion of many that Coleridge as Poet is almost equally an evanescent shadow; and though the many are in this quite mistaken, they have some excuse for thinking thus, because his fulfillment falls far short of his promise. Due to Coleridge’s compl
Sound In PoetrySound In Poetry Shana Williamson April 7, 2000 English 110B-Frank Essay #2 Sound in Poetry Poems usually begin with words or phrase which appeal more because of their sound than their meaning, and the movement and phrasing of a poem. Every poem has a texture of sound, which is at least as important as the meaning behind the poem. Rhythm, being the regular recurrence of sound, is at the heart of all natural phenomena: the beating of a heart, the lapping of waves against the shore, the croaking of

Segregation and The Civil Rights MovementSegregation and The Civil Rights Movement Segregation was an attempt by white Southerners to separate the races in every sphere of life and to achieve supremacy over blacks.
