Pronounced [Gal - i – ni - ni] adverb, adjective

To sing A Cappella
Galinini is the extended dramatic modern A Cappella way of singing, usually in a close four-part harmony and nearly always in B-flat major and is completely different to the Renaissance polyphony and Baroque concertato style of a cappello singing.
First adopted by the popular band Queen for their rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody where such immortal words as "Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the fandango?" were sung in this way.
