The documentary Heavenly Voices: The Legacy of Farinelli documents the period in which castrati became a major part of popular music. These performers were boys who were castrated at a young age so that there voice never deepened, and were necessary after the pope banned female performers. Modern singers replicate the arias that became favorites during this era of music history.
