Great Countertenor Recording


My son, Mark, is planning to study voice at UNC School of the Arts in the fall. He has interest in singing countertenor. My exposure to countertenors was limited to Gene Puerling‘s work with the Hi-Lo’s and Singers Unlimited. I had heard no classical singers in this range.

Mark and I found great examples on YouTube of fantastic singers including David Daniels, James Bowman and several others. This recording of Phillipe Jaroussky stands out. I love his timbre and his facility with ornamentation. The chamber group is outstanding. Give this one a listen and let me know what you think!
