The Supernatural Voice
A History of High Male SingingeBook - 2014
The use of high male voices in the past has long been one of the most seriously misunderstood areas of musical scholarship and practice. In opening up this rich subject (to readers of all sorts) with refreshingly clear perspectives and plenty of new material, Simon Ravens'' well-researched book goes a very long way to rectifying matters. Ravens writes damnably well, and if the story that emerges is necessarily a complex one, his treatment of it is always engagingly comprehensible.'' ANDREW PARROTT Tracing the origins, influences and development of falsetto singing in Western music, Simon Rave.
