About

Handel and Vivaldi's greatest opera arias, once sung by castrati, are here performed by Nathalie Stutzmann!

It is in 1562 that we find one of the first historical references to a castrato singer. He was a member of the Sistine Chapel's choir. Castrato voices have played a Major role in the sacred music and operas of the 17th and 18th centuries. Around 1830, castrati disappeared from the opera scenes, even though they were still present in the Vatican choirs until 1920.
