I think your comment might well have hit the nail on the head, Dick!
I'd certainly like Ruairidh's comment on that one. I'm no expert on JT, like Nick just an admirer. I'm pretty sure he had sung in choirs etc. and possibly even had vocal training at some point.

I can comment on his register. Any male who was used to singing in public performance pre technology era was used to using a high register for projection. This was commented on by university students in Germany during WWI who were recording foreign speakers and singers who were prisoners of war.
