Included in the documentary - Alfred Deller sings in public.
Back in 1975 Benoit Jacquot, then a very young director met up with Alfred Deller to make this documentary-interview, which offers one of the very few filmed documents of the most famous countertenor of the modern era. The DVD is accompanied by a bonus CD featuring studio recordings of some of the pieces sung in concert in the film.
“…Deller… answers questions about his own life and career, the history of the countertenor, and how the voice is produced. Whilst beguiled by his clear, expressive voice, we can study his eloquent gestures as he sings. CD and DVD show clearly how and why Deller was the champion (in all senses) of the countertenor voice previously unregarded by the general public and confined for centuries to English church choirs.”
