Quote of the Day

The old adage that a house without a good foundation must fall to the ground, is not inapplicable to the formation or building of the voice; for, if the more substantial sounds (the lower tones) are not carefully cultivated, there can be no dependence on the upper tones; they will be uncertain both in strength and truth of intonation.

Nathan, Isaac. Misurgia vocalis. British Library, 1836.
