Thread Name: Gender and the soprano voice
Subject: RE: Gender and the soprano voice
Looks like we're thread-creeping back to the topic.... What did it sound like, Charlotte singing alongside a boy soprano? If she can do it, there would seem to be no logical reason why girls should be barred from most of the Cathedral choirs. And such choirs would, in that case, deserve to have the Sex Discrimination Act thrown at them. And any cathedral that does recruit girls, but requires them to sing in a separate choir, is surely behaving pretentiously.
