American male soprano Michael Maniaci he declines the descriptor countertenor pursues beauty rather than power in his singing, which is entirely worth hearing. The album concludes with the virtuoso cantata Exsultate, Jubilate, K. 165, which is a real soprano showpiece Maniaci's almost quiet but superbly controlled version is a true surprise. The entire program is quite a departure for the U. Telarc label, known for its orchestral showpieces and pops spectaculars, but the engineers, with the help of the fine acoustics at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, MA, present this smaller music to best advantage. Well worth hearing for aficionados of the high male voice. Although this was possible for castrati because of the hormonal imbalance following castration, Maniaci claims that, for some unknown reason, his larynx did not develop and lengthen completely during puberty, causing his voice not to break in the usual manner.

We are accustomed to counter-tenors who can soar up through the break, but Maniaci bursts the sound barrier, with the help of Martin Pearlman and Boston Baroque and this cluster of Mozart arias written for castrati. It may not be the loveliest male voice, but it's certainly one of the highest. More about: Baroque Music Singers Tenor . Album 2009 11 Songs.

Michael Maniaci describes himself as a male soprano rather than a counter-tenor, as he says this is his natural voice. Most counter-tenors are in fact baritones or, occasionally, tenors who can produce a sustained and strong falsetto. While my vocal cords lengthened and thickened somewhat, they didnt do so to the extent that most men experience. I dont find Michael Maniacis voice a naturally beautiful one, but the artistry is evident, and the accompaniment from Martin Pearlmans Baroque orchestra is exemplary. Martin Pearlman.
