The members of the quartet the Canadian Tenors are eager to distance themselves from the term "popera," and prefer to call what they do crossover, but their sound and repertoire are not that far from groups like Il Divo. Their first Decca release is made up of arrangements of pop and folk classics, and includes only one classical piece, a version of Albinoni's Adagio. There is a special appeal in the sound of the four men's voices in close harmony, particularly since their emphasis is on the ensemble, and not a competition in virtuosity to see who can sing the highest and loudest. The group's sound is characterized by big, richly orchestrated arrangements, augmented by backup vocals, exotic instrumental effects, and a driving rock beat.
