Shama-il Tirmidhi Chapter 43, Hadith Number 7 (303).

Qataadah Radiyallahu ‘Anhu narrates that Allah gave to every Nabi that He had sent a beautiful feature and beautiful voice. Your Nabi Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam also had a beautiful feature and a beautiful voice. Rasulullah Sallallhu ‘Alayhi Wasallam did not recite in a melodious tone as singers do.

Apparently this hadith seems to contradict the previous one, explained in the commentary of the previous hadith. It means that he did not repeat the sound whilst reciting. Some of the ‘ulama take this to mean as singing and reciting, and that it has been prohibited in many ahaadith to recite with a singing tone.
