John Whitworth, 91, Who Brought The High Male Voice Back To The Modern World
The countertenor voice "had disappeared from British concert life for the two centuries between the age of Handel and the mid-1940s, when Michael Tippett enlisted the Canterbury Cathedral singer Alfred Deller for his revival of the music of Henry Purcell. By the 1950s, John, too, was a soloist, sometimes appearing alongside Deller." The Guardian (UK) 08/18/13
