Polyphony is a choral music genre that involves multiple independent vocal parts singing simultaneously, creating a rich and complex sound. This genre is often associated with Renaissance and Baroque music, and is characterized by its intricate harmonies and counterpoint. The use of vocal techniques such as melisma and word painting are common in polyphony music. Some of the most well-known ensembles in this genre include those who specialize in performing sacred choral music, such as The King's Singers, The Sixteen, and The Tallis Scholars.
