In singing, there is a rare type of voice that both soothes the soul and curls the blood, seems both divine and demonic, inspires and scares, this is the voice of a Basso Profondo.
Such a voice is sure to breed feelings of jealousy and sexual inferiority in an average bass singer, and this cartoon presents such feelings as perilous.
The orchestra sequence has been shamefully rotoscoped from the BPO's performance of Tchaikovsky's Flower Waltz, it can be found here, http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=QK3ELt0zPLg
A great use of the Basso Profondo is made, as shown in the last scene, in the choir singing of the Orthodox Church of Russia, and example can be found here, http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=6WpD2Cspn6g
A special thanks to all those whose voice dwells into the counteroctave.
