Articles on this web site:

What are some of the obvious differences between older and more recent singers? We list a dozen differences for a start, and give you eighteen sound samples.

"I hear you haven't got a wobble". That's why the English coloratura soprano Gwen Catley was chosen for an important radio programme. We examine her pure art.

Why all the current emphasis on darkness in a voice? We compare this to a more 'enlightened' past.
Opera versus Oratorio? For some of our thoughts on the current state of play, click here .


Puccini coached Maria Jeritza. We look at Jeritza's account of this, and her dramatic singing.




We also run occasional Courses  with tips on historical singing, and you might like a peek at our changing Picture Gallery  for picking up occasional lessons from old singers.

Our editor, James Anderson - who gives Lectures on singers - says, "I am a classical musician, based in Europe, who most recently ran the prestigious Festival de Pollensa in Majorca. I used to work at the Arts Council of Great Britain. I have spent much time collating the advice in the   We Sang Better   volumes. I now give time to educating students and voice lovers about the achievements, ideals and training of these great singers of the past. Their advice is much needed again today!"
