Fun Information

 Did you ever wonder why men's barbershop music is written on the treble and bass clef while the notes actually sung are really bass clef notes?  Below is the first line of My Wild Irish Rose written as actually sung with the tenor part in black, the lead in red, the bari in green and the bass in blue!  You can see why Barbershop chords have such close harmony. Now you know.
