The highest male singing voice?

the castradi

Castrati were male singers who were castrated before their voice changed, so as to preserve an especially beautiful voice. They sang in the same register as a mezzo-soprano. The practice was discontinued in the nineteenth century. The highest male voice now is a countertenor, a man with an especially powerful falsetto, in effect a male mezzo-soprano.
