David, Here are some references on the acoustic analysis of vibrato: d'Alessandro, Christophe & Castellengo, "A parameteric study on pitch of short vocal vibrato tones", (A) JASA, Vol. 91, No. 4, Pt. 2, p. 2434 (1992). Maher, Robert & Beauchamp, James, "An investigation of vocal vibrato for synthesis, Applied Acoustics, Vol. 30, 219-245 (1990). Prame, Eric, "Measurements of the vibrato rate of ten singers", JASA, Vol. 96, No. 4, 1979-1984 (1994). Shipp, Thomas, Doherty, E. Thomas, & Hakes, Jean, "Mean frequency of vocal vibrato relative to target frequency", J. Voice, Vol. 3, No. 1, 32-35 (1989). Shipp, Thomas, Sunberg, Johan, & Doherty, E. Thomas, "The effect of delayed auditory feedback on vocal vibrato", J. Voice, Vol. 2., No. 3, 195-199 (1988). Shonle, John I. & Haran, Kathryn, "The pitch of vibrato tones", JASA, Vol. 67, No. 1, 246-252 (1980). Yoshiyuki, Horii, "Acousic analysis of vocal vibrato: A theoretical interpretation of data", J. Voice, Vol. 3, No. 1, 36-43 (1989). Most vibrato research seems to be on the human voice. I don't have any references on vibrato of instruments or on emotional response to vibrato.
