Summary/Abstract: The article constitutes an attempt at the broad issue of an artistic rendition of a song in the vocal aspect. The above ruminations allow to conclude that its sonic characteristics (tempo, dynamism, pitch and timbre) are consistent with the emotional content of speech and singing; hence, it is relatively easy to tune the voice to the content of speech and singing. The article emphasizes the process of selection of these elements, which can be of interest to all kinds of performers (soloists, conductors, choirs) in the process of their own artistic rendition of the song. All previous formulations or repeated statements have been drawn from practical application and that is the model to which they should return. It does not mean, therefore, that we should obey strict rules, but rather that we should carefully considerthe aforementioned issues.
