The Editor’s Desk: Welcome

By  | January 1, 2011 | 0 Comments | Filed under: The Editor's Desk

Hello and thank you for joining us as we officially launch The Countertenor Voice: An Online Journal. Together with our parent company, Counterpoints Publishing LLC, we at the journal are excited to bring you our first installment of articles and reviews. In this month’s online journal, Oliver reviews Jaroussky, I broach the subject of whether the countertenor sound is as tied to the Anglican and early music movements as it used to be (and we invite you to take a quick survey on the subject), we listen to a fierce Polish contralto, and we introduce our initial offering of scores for purchase and download.

If you are new to this journal, we do have a number of posts from last month; you can click through the departments in the menu bar above (Features, Reviews, Watch This Now!, etc…) to see what you missed. :-)

Let us know what you think via the comments feature, share us with your friends on facebook, and help us spread the word that this community of countertenors, countertenor enthusiasts, and lovers of music is officially online.
