Last night on Bravo, they showed a documentary about Countertenors that was fantastic. Has anyone else heard of Alfred Deller or Andreas Scholl? I'm just now learning about this so I'm quite excited, please excuse me.

Alfred Deller, deceased, had an amazing voice. The documentary showed a clip of him perforing in A Midsummer Night's Dream and then a clip of Andreas Scholl performing Hamlet.
