I came across this article written by tenor Ian Bostridge (one of my favourite singers) about his forthcoming album and concert, which unfortunately I cannot attend <sob>. In this article he talks about three 18th century tenors, Beard, Borosini and Fabri. Beard, I have come across, in fact we’ve performed some of the songs associated with him. Bostridge describes the way that studying the work of these three singers have shown him that there are different ways of being a tenor than what is usually associated with classical singing. Enjoy!
