Did you know, "A cappella" singing is the oldest form of music? The term refers to unaccompanied (ie, without instruments) choral or individual singing. Literally it is an Italian phrase meaning 'in the manner of the church' - a by-product of its liturgical development. However there are indications of a cappella singing in the archaeological record from over 3,000 years ago and it is certainly likely that some form of human vocal performance predates all but the simplest instruments.
