Thread Name: Ballad Singing: A Dissenting Opinion
Subject: RE: Ballad Singing: A Dissenting Opinion
Thanks Jim , that's what I was hoping for . I have just been listening to some Mongolian singers and they use all the cavities from chest to head and can sing several notes at the same time to harmonise.

I am interested as to whether 'nasal' singing was looked down on because art singing was opera based and it was a clas and aesthetic issue.

I agree that indoor singing by a sean nos singer is different from what would be needed at a fair or busy market.

Again, why did/do so many revivalists get it wrong?
