Description
In the unique instrument of Michael Maniaci—with its combination of power, purity, and stratospheric high notes—we come as close as possible to experiencing what it was like to listen to the famed castrati in the arias that were written especially for them in centuries gone by—including these selections from Idomeneo, Lucio Silla, and La clemenza di Tito, as well as the great solo motet Exultate Jubilate.

"It's as though we have opened a door on another world. Here is a man singing entirely comfortably in the two octaves above middle C—that's about a sixth above a countertenor's range…. Maniaci says his vocal cords did not thicken in the way of most men and this allows him to sing works specifically written for the great castrati of the baroque and classical eras…. The voice is effortless, with no hint of a break into falsetto."—The Observer
