Subject: RE: men singing high
Thanks for the interested responses, everyone. It's nice to talk to people about music without crude jokes and bickering.
Don Firth and GeorgianSilver: thanks for the links to Rossini and Peter Bellamy. Both are well worth listening to. The Rossini produced some good laughter to start a Saturday off right.
Don, I remember hearing Albert Deller in college in the '60's, when a sophisticate from Boston played 'The Ode for St Cecelia's Day' in our dorm.
The most beautiful countertenor I have ever heard is sung by a twenty-something from eastern Kansas. His voice is so clear that one time I decided that he couldn't be singing, he must be lip-synching to a recording of a trained soprano. But no, it's his voice.
I haven't found any mention of him on the Internet, so apparently he is not ready to go public. So I won't mention his name. Wish I could share his art, but that's up to him.
