(Or mezzos; I’m not certain of the difference.)
Check out this male alto or countertenor, Max Cencic. He’s so amazingly good he’s got me wondering if any female altos have a voice as spectacular as his.
Can somebody point me to women singing in the same range with that kind of power and precision? Forgive me if this is heresy, but I don’t think Marilyn Horne, for example, is quite as good as he is.
His male chest is giving him that power - like Sister Mary Ignatius, I guess I mourn the passing of the castrati. But not really - castrati sang soprano as far as I know. I’m craving perfection in the alto range. A man singing falsetto can’t be it, can he?
