    I just finished a not-too-terrible book about castrati singers by, of all people, Ann Rice. In the historical notes at the end she mentioned that she had been able to hear a remastered (very old) recording of the last
    castrato, singing as a very old man. However, she neglected to tell us
    where ordinary folk like myself can go to listen to this recording.
    Does anyone have any ideas where I can find this? Not that I think we
    should bring the custom back, but I am awfully curious as to what castrati sounded like.
