W.A Mozart, Exsultate Jubilate & Allelujah sang by Michael Maniaci

W.A Mozart, Exsultate Jubilate & Allelujah sang by Michael Maniaci.

Written by Mozart for the castrato Venanzio Rauzzini. Michael Maniaci, a true male soprano (not countertenor, or falsetist or even sopranist, but the real soprano deal) sings this with virtuosity and delivers precise coloratura, beautiful high notes and even 2 beautiful high C’s (In classical period tuning of 430).

Mr Maniaci is said to have a very similar voice to the legendary Castrati of the 18th century.

What an amazing voice!
