Andreas Sholl in Countertenors


2008 NR

The soaring male falsetto -- once the domain of the renowned castrati of the 16th and 17th centuries -- is now achieved through natural means, as demonstrated by this beguiling group of countertenors. International sensations Michael Chance, Andreas Sholl and James Bowman showcase their extraordinary voices and expound on the appeal of this unique form of singing, grounded both in sacred and operatic traditions.
