A History of the Countertenor Voice


Created in partnership with 'Early Music Sources,' this project aims to present an overview of the history of the countertenor voice and the role of falsetto in Western singing while addressing several common misconceptions on the subject. This document began as my preparatory notes on the subject, but quickly became extensive enough to warrant their inclusion on this page.


Collection of Ornamented Vocal Music


The issue of ornamentation is one of the most tangible elements of historical performance practices due in part to the high level of attention dedicated to the subject by historical writers. This project consists of an open-source list of ornamented vocal music ranging from late Medieval period to the 20th century. The aim of the project is to collate the vast amount of source material which is already available online into a single, easily searchable document.
