Sunday I will be shooting my next short “Ave Maria,” a short that brings back the character Missy from “Microcinema.”
It is based on this recording of Ave Maria by Alessandro Moreschi, the last famous castrito who sang in the choir at the basilica in Rome. He was castrated the age of 7 so he could sing like a little girl for the Pope. Even in manhood. He recorded this version of Ave Maria in 1902.
