Over generations, baroque vocal music has been placed an important role for voice training. The vast reservoir of baroque vocal music ranging from Bach, Handel, and Vivaldi is an essential repertoire list for many new singers. However, many of us (the singers) seemed unaware to the stylistic approach when performing these pieces, partly because most singers are over concerned on the voice technical development, and many are lacked of knowledge to the appropriate manner to the early music performance. Hence, my present study set to report some imperfections of voice performances based on my own experience and to confer with some of the early vocal music practices.
