There are only a handful of people in the world who could properly be termed "male sopranos," or true sopranists. Most of the (not many!) men who can sing in the soprano range at all do so using a falsetto, a vocal technique that uses only the edges of one's vocal cords; this lets people sing generally an octave higher than their natural range, but with far less depth and control than in their ordinary ("modal") voice.

Michael Maniaci is an exception: for reasons not fully understood, his larynx never developed fully, and so his voice never changed when he went through puberty. As a result, he has a true soprano voice -- but one that's fairly different from a female soprano, no doubt due to the different shape of the rest of his vocal cavity. (e.g., the breadth of his nasal cavity and of his chest) It has a darker tone to it, even as it reaches just as high.

There are a handful of other men who sing in this range as well, such as the Romanian Radu Marian, who (for endocrinological reasons) never went through puberty, and so has a slightly different intonation still. 

Here's Michael Maniaci singing Mozart's "Exultate, Jubilate!" For a comparison, you can listen to the great (female) mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli singing it: https://youtu.be/o_NTW_0P1_s?t=1m7s

(This is a slightly unfair comparison as Bartoli is one of the world's great opera singers, and while Maniaci is good, he's not in the same league. But what's interesting to compare here isn't who's better, but the rather fascinating tones that a sopranist has)

Can't wait for the new Gorillaz album if this is anything to go by.  From Blur's awesome new album, The Magic Whip.

Let's not forget that this while thing between Greece and the EU came about criminally... If Greece's books weren't cooked, they would probably not be in the EU in the first place.

Either way, if there was a simple solution, there wouldn't be a problem. 😉

Not massively fussed about the movie but it's a pretty great trailer! Props to the trailer chaps. 👌

Cosy and intimate. We went upstairs to the small bar room for a play. Drinks were reasonable, London prices and the food looked great, although I didn't eat... Lovely staff.

Delicious food, lovely décor and freshly made cakes. I recommend their 'The Vonns' ciabatta sandwich and a slice of seriously good carrot cake. Prices are on the expensive side, unfortunately..

Great staff, professional refs and decent-quality pitches. We play in the Tuesday League each week and always feel welcome. Big projector screen in the Players Lounge bar area to watch the football and a bunch of food and drink available.

Decent selection of drinks, including real ale and a few bottled IPAs. Plenty of seating, great atmosphere and a pretty impressive building. Toilets were clean and the staff were happy. Will definitely go back there if I'm in the area with friends.
