The history and technique of the counter-tenor : a study of the male high voice family by Peter Giles( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author adopts something of an alternative approach to a controversial subject. Though championing and celebrating the counter-tenor voice range, he is by no means uncritical of some aspects of it as heard today. In this work, in some respects, standard musicology is complemented rather than complimented. The breadth of perception of this book make it invaluable reading for all those who are involved or interested in the counter-tenor voice, in historical singing techniques and in pre-baroque and baroque music generally

A basic countertenor method : for teacher and student by Peter Giles( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Drawn from his long experience as a cathedral lay-clerk and solo singer, Peter Giles gives us a comprehensive guide, from the making of the first sounds to acquiring the complete technique. The vital aspects of resonance, different registers, breathing, vocal agility, are all carefully explained; in words but also with special drawings created by the author himself. There are graded vocal exercises to encourage us to produce the sounds which have been so thoroughly dealt with - it is in fact the complete manual for the teacher and the would-be countertenor. First published in 1988, this is a completely new edition - revised, updated and redesigned."--Book jacket
