  1. Ave Maria!
    gratia plena
    Dominus tecum
    benedicta tua
    in mulieribus
    et benedictus
    fructus ventris tuus
    sancta Maria!
    sancta Maria!
    ora pro nobis
    nobis pecatorimus
    nunc et in hora
    in hora
    mortis nostrae

  2. Que criminales!!!! Castrar un niño para que se le quede la voz blanca, y poder sustituir las voces de mujeres en los coros católicos. Que verguenza!!!! Todavía cuando Verdi estrenó su Requiem en el coro no podía haber mujeres,
    como tiene notas tan agudas, Verdi escondió debajo del Coro las sopranos y mezzosopranos vestidas de hombre.

  3. Considering that this was 100 years or more ago that families paid other men to whip the balls off prepubescent boys no wonder it died out.
    I saw the movie based on the life of one extremely aka rock star castrati and I remember the scene where just before a newly docked boy kills himself by jumping off the balcony warns the others waiting don't listen to them.
    Getting boys to sing like girls. Does that scream pedophile to you? Imagine what the men were doing to them after hours ?

  4. People who have gone to Music School – or people who have taken the time to research the subject – can understand it. That's the primary difference between Moreschi and James Bowman, who has cojones and sings from his head.
