Thank you for this wonderful find.

While listening to this tour de force of music originally intended to be sung by a castrato, I googled “Randall Wong” and found his home website (www.randall-wong.com, which goes to this site: http://web.mac.com/catcameback/iWeb/Site/Welcome.html). It includes a set of clips of his singing. A discography of his works can also be found here:

He has a gorgeous instrument, which displays perfect technique and wonderful fioratura. I am not surprised that he is an alumnus of the male choral group, Chanticleer

To call Mr. Wong a “counter-tenor” is to do injustice to his art. He is truly a “sopranista’, which better describes his range and the quality of his singing.

Again, without either guile or irony, thank you, Arturo.
