Angelo Frank Cammarata Sr., whose singing entertained local audiences for more than five decades at wedding receptions and bar mitzvahs, died of cancer Wednesday at his Perry Hall home. He was 67. A founder of the singing group The Romanos, he sang tenor and played the drums at thousands of Baltimore social engagements. Born in Baltimore and raised on Chapel Street, he was introduced to music while playing in the old St. Paul's Parochial School Drum Corps on Caroline Street. While attending Clifton Park Junior High School, he was drawn to the popular vocal groups of the day, including the Four Aces and the Ames Brothers.

When the African-American singing group Three Mo' Tenors takes the stage tonight at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, there likely will be little evidence on-stage of the nasty spat off-stage that has been gobbling up time, energy and money for lawyers' fees. A quarrel between two trios of singers and their managers became public this week. Both sides are trading accusations, insults and threats of lawsuits - all over who is entitled to call themselves Three Mo' Tenors. "They are exploiting our success and deceiving the public with a copycat act," said Carol Kirkendall, who manages the three singers who in 2001 were the first to be called Three Mo' Tenors: Victor Trent Cook, Rodrick Dixon and Thomas Young.

I admit I've never felt compelled to associate Christmas with Ireland. Sure, the world premiere of Handel's Messiah was in Dublin in the spring of 1742, but that's a tenuous connection at best, considering that the concert took place about 26 decades ago and that two-thirds of that blockbuster oratorio isn't about the birth of Jesus anyway. St. Patrick's Day, sure. But Christmas and the Emerald Isle? Let it be noted, though, that I'm changing my tune because of the magical tunes that will be spun out at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts on Sunday evening when Ciaran Nagle, Anthony Norton and Paul Byrom, known as the Three Irish Tenors, visit Annapolis for Christmas from Dublin.

Ohhhh, my love, my darling ... " No doubt you now will fill in the rest. It's one of the most recognizable openings from one of the most recognizable and romantic songs in pop history - the kind that helps conceive generations. Bobby Hatfield, the tenor half of the Righteous Brothers, sang that song, "Unchained Melody." Right - lots of people have sung that one. Elvis sang it. But not like Bobby Hatfield. It's billed as a Righteous Brothers song, and it was written by two guys named North and Zaret in 1955.

Teddy Edwards, 78, a deft and soulful saxophonist who was a mainstay of the Southern California jazz scene and played what is said to be the first recorded bebop solo on tenor saxophone, died of prostate cancer Sunday in Los Angeles. A fixture in Los Angeles jazz for more than a half-century, Mr. Edwards was relatively unknown elsewhere, although he had a following in Europe. Unlike Dexter Gordon, his friend and a fellow Los Angeles tenor saxophonist, he never felt the urge to move to New York.

Annapolis Opera's 15th annual Vocal Competition on Sunday at Maryland Hall showcased eight talented finalists selected the week before from a pool of 75 singers from the mid-Atlantic region. At least half of the finalists displayed remarkable talent, providing an entertaining afternoon for the audience and a difficult task for the judges. One soprano struck me as a prima donna assoluta, captivating the audience with her gorgeous voice, vocal expressiveness and agility, acting ability, technical expertise and majestic bearing.

He makes other workaholics look like slackers. He makes other sexagenarian singers sound like nonagenarians. He's Placido Domingo -- tenor, conductor, bicoastal opera administrator, record-breaker. No known tenor has ever sung as many operatic roles -- 119, with the 120th slated next season. You can find another tenor or two who has managed an opera company, but not one who did so while still actively singing. Or one who served as artistic director of two opera companies simul-taneously, as Domingo does now in Washington and Los Angeles.

Coward The Noel Coward Songbook. Ian Bostridge, tenor; Jeffrey Tate, pianist. (EMI Classics 5 57374) English tenor Ian Bostridge has emerged in the past few years as an unusually insightful interpreter of art songs. His exceptional taste, imagination and attention to diction and the myriad nuances of a text (of a single word, for that matter) put him in the forefront of today's vocal artists. Other tenors can produce warmer, richer tones, to be sure, but few can penetrate a song as memorably and movingly.

"Gesang ist dasein," said the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke: "To sing is to be." The poet's message has not been lost on James Murphy, a senior at River Hill High School in Clarksville who has been an avid aficionado of vocal music since he began singing as a third-grader at Waverly Elementary School in Ellicott City. Murphy, whose love for the choral art would blossom in the Patapsco Middle School Chamber Choir, Peabody Children's Chorus, Howard County Children's Chorus and Maryland's Junior All-State Choir, is still an impassioned singer.
