Then during my first year of college I joined Basilean where four of us formed a quartet for a short time. There were Brian Leland (bass), Dave Becker (baritone), me (second tenor), and believe it or not … Ryan DeBarr (first tenor). That was a lot of fun. Since then, I’ve enjoyed singing in various church quartets. One of my favorites was at Bible Community Church with Dan Pfeifle, Bruce Cline, and Tom Spence. It’s good to smile and look back on “the good old days.”
Today, I got in the mood to hear some good harmony. So, I googled “barbershop” and found a listing of various barbershop quartets. On that site, I was able to listen to sample recordings of several groups. Of the ones I perused, several made my “listen-again” list. And after listening to them over and over again, I thought it would be good to share what I’ve been enjoying. Click on a link below to hear the tune.
Note that you’ll need Real Player to hear each one.
