equal voices (It. voci eguali; Lat. voces aequales; Ger. gleiche Stimmen). A choral comp. is said to be for ‘equal vv.’ when it is for vv. of the same kind, generally for 2 sop. or 3 sop. (sch. mus. and mus. for women's choirs). In such mus., in fairness to the vv. of the performers, the parts are usually so arr. that sometimes one v. and sometimes another is at the top. Occasionally the term is less correctly used as implying ‘for children's vv.’ (unmixed with adults) or ‘for women's vv.’ (unmixed with men's), or vice versa.
