To quote from David Wright: "Barbershop tag singing is surely one of the grandest traditions arising from the field of vocal harmony. A tag is a short passage consisting of an arrangement's ending, or coda, which is taught and sung in sessions of informal chord-ringing. The tag allows four singers to quickly blend their voices in a few seconds of blissful harmony without the burden of learning an entire song."

For all you barbershoppers out there - here are 125 tags - free for your listening and learning pleasure! Download the whole collection here!

This list of tags corresponds exactly to the Classic Tags collection, compiled by David Wright, and assisted by Jim Bagby, Jim Henry, Kevin Keller, and David Krause. In the spirit of helping out the barbershop community, this collection is offered free of charge, and I hope that it will be of help to many people who enjoy these wonderful, classic tags.

You asked for it: I have now made 4-part tracks available for each tag! Just click on the button next to a song, and you can download a compressed 'zip' file which contains all 4 parts, plus the full mix. At the bottom of the page, you can now download a compressed file for each voice part.

Due to the considerable time and effort I've put into these tags, if you find them useful, please consider making a donation - I'd really appreciate it!

Thanks, and please enjoy!
