A Cappella

A Cappella is a vocal performance where solo or group singers perform without instrumental accompaniment.

 

The Latin translation of "A Cappella" means "in chapel or choir style" this was used to describe performances without instrumental accompaniment because scholars thought that "chapel music" written before the 1600's was always performed A Cappella (without instrumental accompaniment).
