15 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a uniquely comprehensive survey of the counter-tenor, his role in the history of western art music, its present state, and begins to ponder on its possible future condition. In two parts, the first covers the history of the voice from the early application of the 'falsetto' effect, through its heyday in the 17th and 18th centuries, its decline in the 19th century and early 20th century and eventual post-war revival. The second part describes the mechanism and techniques of the counter-tenor, including contemporary comment on the 'feigned voice' of the Renaissance, the relationship between different high male voices and the ranges and styles of the counter-tenor voice family

A basic countertenor method : for teacher and student by Peter Giles( Book )

8 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in English and held by 171 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."--Jacket
