Product Description
Product Details

About the Author

Throughout his 20-year career as a counter-tenor, Nicholas Clapton has been particularly involved in performing the virtuoso repertoire of the castrati. A professor of Singing at the Royal Academy of Music, this biography of Moreschi, who he has already played on stage, is his first book.


'... In an immaculately produced and beautifully illustrated short volume, Clapton sets the castrato in a historical context ... Clapton is excellent on the physical and psychological effects of castration as experienced by Moreschi ... a valuable historical record of a nearly forgotten art.' -- Andrew Green Classical Music 'Invaluable ... a fascinating account of the relations between the Vatican and Italy during the last half of the 19th century ... Clapton's story is told with wit, compassion and elegance.' -- Michael Tanner BBC Music Magazine
