Translated from the French by Margaret Crosland. Bound in the original black boards, stamped in shiny gold. Complete with dust jacket. From the publisher: "This entertaining and authoritative study of the castrati during the baroque period explores the lives and triumphs of more than 60 singers over three centuries -- their social origins, training, and relationship to society and church. Blending history and anecdote, it traces the course of a phenomenon that held Europe in its thrall. People were fascinated by these hybrids -- part man, part woman, and part child -- who became virile heroes on the operatic stage. The reader will learn of the horrors of castration, the nature of the strange castrato voice, and the conflicts these singers experienced.". First Edition in English. Hardcover. Fine condition/Near Fine dust jacket. 8vo. (x), 262pp.
