Alessandro Moreschi (1858 - 1922) - The Last Castrato, Complete Vatican Recordings (Opal, 1984)

Prof. Moreschi was born in Montecompatrio (near Rome) and died in Rome, where he was the last castrato and also conductor at the Cappella Sistina from 1883-98. When he began his studies in 1871 it was already difficult to find a teacher. In 1914 Franz Habock's plan of a "Farinelli revival" failed as his range had become too low. He sang liturgical music only. He was the only castrato to make records, which he did in 1902 and 1904. The 17 old acoustic recordings can only give an impression, which is not that good, but still remarkable as an historic document of a style which you will find no where else.. He was in his forties at the time. He sang in the Vatican under Leo XIII who had banned the practice in 1878.

A sample of his voice is used in a loop on the Current 93 EP 'Where The Long Shadows Fall (Beforetheinmostlight)'.

Thanks for the post! I was just reading film critic Roger Ebert's review of the film 'Farinelli' - and he notes this Alessandro Moreschi recording. Wasn't aware of the Current 93 loop, also - I'll have to check that out.
