Hello, Mr. Herbert-Caesari!

Today I received from Surrey, England, a two-disc collection of the teaching of Edgar Herbert-Caesari. Caesari, like so many other pedagogues throughout vocal history was a singer whose voice was ruined by errant teaching methods.

He became important through his writings on singing and his attempts to recapture the Old Italian school of singing at a time when loud, dramatic, and aggressive singing was the rule of the day.

Stay tuned for future posts on these recordings as I listen and digest their information.
