Baritone is a type of classical male singing voice that lies between the bass and tenor voices. It is the most common male voice. Originally from the Greek βαρυτονος, meaning 'deep (or heavy) sounding', music for this voice is typically written in the range from the second F below middle C to the F above middle C (i.e. F2-F4) in choral music, and to G above middle C (i.e. F2-G4) in operatic music, though it can be extended at either end. It is one octave below the mezzo-soprano voice range in women.
