Decca's international search for the lowest singing voice out there - specifically, a voice that can sing Low E, three octaves below middle C
- has been won by Tim Storms
(warning, auto starts some sound). Storms is Guinness record holder of Lowest human voice and widest vocal range for male.
Storms' normal 'talking' voice can be heard here
in an interview with BBC radio. His singing voice can be heard here in a recording of 'That Lonesome Road
' and here is a recording of him singing 8 hertz
The competition was organised so as to find a singer who could sing the lowest note in a new choral work 'De Profundis
' by Paul Mealor, who is best known as one of the composers featured
in the church service
of a recent Royal Wedding.
