Second reloaded batch: Italian tenors, the largest of all sections.
Entirely new: the (admittedly offbeat and most probably dispensable) pages on Carrisi and Taormina; plus the page still prepared (but not yet published) by François Nouvion on Oneto; further the picture, chronology, biography and discography of Zonghi; the picture, chronology and discography of Lanzirotti, Re and Vaccari; the discography and an additional recording of Cibelli; the voices of Gasparini, Lupato and Marletta; the voice and picture of Verso; the picture of Lega; the picture and discography of Malesci; updated discographies of Polverosi and Sorrentino; updated chronologies and discographies of Siroli and Taliani; as well as – in some cases just very short – biographical information on Angione, Caruso Jr., De Santis, Stefano Ferrari, Lamberti, Ragonese, Rocca, Spruzzola Zola, Stuarti and Zulian. Further, the page on Maggi has been revamped and contains now also his discography. Quite a lot of sound files have been corrected in pitch, notably those of Zaccari (who sounded, at the chosen transfer speed, much like a boy soprano) as well as several Di quella pira recordings that had been tuned up to high Cs that the respective tenors never had sung. Finally, the (incomplete) Nessun dorma recording by La Scola has been substituted by an extremely similar but complete version.

New page: contact and disclaimer.

The first section to be reinstalled is Asian tenors. In that section, you'll find the complete uploads of François Nouvion; new additions are the short biographical information on Deng and the pictures of Nakajima, Shin and Wu; completely new are the pages on Chang and Dai.
