Categorizing Baritones

This term baritone has so many meanings. After a male goes through mutation, and changed from the boy soprano, through cambiata, he becomes a baritone, for no better word. With exercise, training and age, the voice enlarges, finds its center, develops colour. Baritone, French Baritone, Basso Buffo Baritone, Verdi Baritone, might be better terms to describe the voice. Again, baritone is not just tessitura, range, colour, volume, what the voice does well/what the voice does poorly. It is so much more.
