Well, here are some... (there must be a lot more, if we ask José Carreras, Plácido Domingo or Montserrat Caballé...)

Sickly-sweet voice = voz melosa

For "husky voice" I'd say "voz ronca"...

Stentorian voice = Voz estentórea

voz entrecortada = hesitant, faltering, halting, jerky voice.

voz cantante (llevar la voz cantante) = to call the shots

(grammar)
voz activa = active voice
voz pasiva = passive voice

voz artificial = voice output, synthesized speech
voz digital = digital voice.
voz humana sintetizada = synthesised speech.

voz interior = inner voice.

voz unánime = unified voice.



voz silenciosa = quiet voice
voz cuchicheante = whispery voice * (Not sure if this actually exists, English natives, please confirm or reject!)

vozarrón = booming voice

Y en arhentino... ¿voz quién sos?

Thank you, Rusty...

I thought of some more, (the English versions subject to correction!)

Voz cálida = warm voice

Voz dulce y cálida = a warm, gentle voice

Voz chirriante = squeaky voice = voz chillona, voz de pito

voz de sargento = sergeant' voice (?) (Not very sure about this one in English...)

voz de abuelete = a voice like granddad's (?)

voz de sarasa = queer voice (?)

voz argentina (clara y sonora) = silvery voice (literary usage?) (clear sounding voice)

voz de cabeza (de falsete) = falsetto voice

voz de trueno = thunderous voice

voz opaca (voz parda) = dull voice

voz brillante = bright voice

voz sumisa = soft and smooth voice (like, begging voice? imploring voice?)

voz grave = deep voice = voz profunda (Garganta profunda = Deep Throat)

voz aguda = high-pitched voice / shrill voice /piercing voice

voz de tenor = tenor's voice
voz de barítono = baritone's voice
voz de tiple = soprano's voice (treble's voice)?
voz de soprano = soprano's voice
la voz del silencio = the voice of silence

la voz de la conciencia = the voice of conscience

Bueno, voy a parar, porque creo que ya oigo voces...

Robin, I think you just opened Pandora's Voice... ( or was it "Box"? Just kidding... don't mind my voice...)

That is usually a sergeant major's voice. He is the one giving orders when doing drill.

De nada...

Lo primero que recordé fue un poema que tenía escrito en mi plumier, cuando tenía 12 ó 13 años... y conservé hasta COU...

Tu voz, amigo, vaga por mi corazón
como el rumor apagado del mar
entre los pinos que lo escuchan...

But, yes, "raspy voice" "hoarse voice"
voz ronca, afónica, gutural, enronquecida...

Ah! Thank you Perikles on the Sergeant major's voice!

Also husky and throaty voice...

Y la voz de Julio Iglesias, que como escribía José Luis Coll "canta como los propios ángeles... de Charlie".

Voz angelical,
Voz melancólica... (y lo que te rondaré, morena)
