The Origins of Modern Tenor Singing consists of four articles by Stefan Zucker. They focus on Rossini, castratos and florid singing; conspicuous fast vibrato, the David family of tenors plus Andrea Nozzari; Rubini; Duprez and the high C from the chest. These articles trace the development of tenor singing from the 1770s through the mid-19th century to Caruso. (The articles were originally published in Opera News from 1981-86.)

The following articles are of related interest: “Singers Who Changed Singing from 1775 to Callas and Sutherland” and “Did the Castrati Have Balls?” both by Stefan Zucker, in Issue #3 of Opera Fanatic magazine, and “A 19th-Century Tenor Colossus: Enrico Tamberlick” by Thomas G. Kaufman, in Issue #2.
