A cappella is defined as music that is sung without instrumental accompaniment. According to the Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, a cappella music was originally “composed to be performed in chapels which, unlike large churches, have no organs” (just like Private Arthur Newberry). A cappella singing ranges from barbershop music to jazz and contemporary styles. Sometimes percussion instruments are used, while other times percussion effects are performed by the voice as well. I tried to include a wide variety of songs for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!
