I’ve been listening to Veni Emmanuel: Ancient and Traditional Christmas Carols, an all-Latin songfest from Classical Academic Press. It’s wonderful. One thing I like about medieval music is that the singing is all with pure tones. Vibrato hadn’t been invented yet. Does anyone know why vibrato in classical singing was invented? I would just as soon do without it.
