squeal their way

Which is not an uncommon attitude for a tenor. Wright was more of a second tenor than a first, tending high but not in the silly range, the head exploding to sing, forever tempting falsetto, notes well above the staff, tenor. Tenors, especially the high tenors, live in a basic tug-of-war with the lyrical sopranos, wanting the attention that comes with singing melody. Sopranos usually win in a choral situation, but tenors boast an equal share of solos. The world has been fascinated with men who sing high for as long as these things have mattered, a fascination that continues to this day. Some of the hardest rocking bands in the world have been fronted by men who squeal their way through every song. I have never been one of those men. I can sing second tenor but I’m really a baritone.
