(Sorry about the inappropriate trash advertisement at the beginning. Just click it off.) Soprano castrato Alessandro Moreschi, last Vatican castrato, in a 111-year-old recording of the Bach/Gounod "Ave Maria." I waited 2 years before producing this video because the quality of the voice does not meet good standards. One factor was the very primative recording methods onto fragile shellac discs. The other factor was that Moreschi was not an 18th-century-trained opera-castrato and does not represent the maverlous castrati of that golden age. I presented it only for historical purposes.
Hail Mary
full of grace
Mary full of grace
Mary full of grace
Hail, Hail Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou among women
and blessed be the
Blessed is the fruit of thy womb
Thy Jesus
Hail Mary
