Cecilia senza coltellino


  1. Glorious music and singer.

    I would not have been able to enjoy it if it had been sung by the Castrati. Such cruelty! Four thousands boys sacrificed every year. What was the church thinking! No art is worth it.

  2. Claudia,
    glad to see your ears enjoyed what they heard.
    As for castrati: What was done to them was certainly no cultural accomplishment.
    If there is any positive to draw from this perversion, it's the fact that the taste of music-afficionados changed, and thus it came out of fashion.

    Yes, I know: Fashions pass.
