Thread Name: Help: Momma Sang Tenor?
Subject: RE: Help: Momma Sang Tenor?
Although the woman's part is called 'contralto', it is most often abbreviated to 'alto', hence the confusion. And four-part harmony arrangements written for two male and two female voices are noted 'S.A.T.B.' for female Soprano and Alto and male Tenor and Bass. Just to muddy the waters even further...:-)
