New Bass note
« on: February 03, 2012, 09:09:24 AM »

A record company has begun a worldwide search for the singer who can sing a note so low that it is thought never to have been sung before.
Written by Military Wives composer Paul Mealor, the choral work De Profundis includes a low E, which lies more than two octaves below middle C.
It is six semitones below the lowest note ever written for a choral piece - a B flat from Rachmaninov's Vespers.
The search for the bass voice will take place via trade magazines and online.

Pity Paul Robeson has gone, he might have achieved it, with tonal colour as well. Nemesis
