There seems to be a demand to know the names and faces behind some of the solo voices in the Vienna Boys' Choir in the past. We have noted a curious belief that there was only ever one soloist (who would have been singing from, say 1920 to about 1980), much in the way that Shakespeare was the only person to ever write anything decent in English (or Goethe in German). This is not true. A choir is very much a team effort (t'was always thus), and we are going to introduce on these pages a number of fine voices with - where available - sound samples. Enjoy!
This is an archival section, and in order to keep the choristers' privacy, we will not deal with current and recent choir members.
