There is some small facts about Janet Baker:
  • Renowned opera singer knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for her services to music.
  • Famous for singing roles origionally done by Castrati. Castrati were male singers who were castrated before puberty so that their voices wouldn't change. The Castrati sound combined the purity of a boy's voice, with the lung power and control of a full-grown male voice. Because this practice has been outlawed, today only women can sing in the range of a castrato role. Baker specialized in this type of role and became very famous for it.
  • She was awarded the C.B.E. (Commander of the Order of the British Empire), Damehood in 1976, and Companion of Honor in 1994 for her services to music.
