JulieF Where are the voices? (92* d) RE: Where are the voices? 08 Nov 07

Hi Russ

Largely it was my own inexperience - I knew what I didn't want to sound like and sang lower. If I had heard someone singing high who I really wanted to sound like I would have tried that. Now I have heard lots of people singing high that I want to sound like and have the knowledge to workout exactly what it is I like. So I can take the decoration and phrasing that I developed in the lower register and try it in the higher.

Certainly on the Scottish and Irish side lots of traditional songs were sung a palour ballads and tended to be sung in the same style that the light opera classics would be sung. I remember this sort of delivery from tv in my childhood. There again I remember belting the songs out as a kid at school as well.
