  • A baritone is a type of classical male singing voice whose vocal range lies between the bass and the tenor voice types, overlapping both of them. It is the most common male voice.  The typical baritone range is from A2 (the second A below middle C) to A4 (the A above middle C). A baritone’s range might extend down to F2 or up to C5. The baritone is the most common type of male voice.
