Turn Up the Volume!
Throughout its history, the Church has paid attention to the female voice.
GPS, cell phones, and many commercials have something in common—more often than not, a feminine tone communicates the information. Have you noticed that computerized announcements, such as those made at public facilities like the airport, the train station, the mall, and the supermarket—as well as prerecorded messages used in voicemail and telemarketing—typically use a female voice.
The quality and sound of the human voice, whether male or female, can be dissected into basic elements. Pitch, the number of vibrations per second, determines whether a sound is high or low. Timbre refers to the tonal quality of sound. Intensity is another word for volume, loud or soft. And duration is the length of time a sound wave remains audible. In all elements, there is a human preference for the female voice.
