Portrait of Alessandro Mareschi the only castrato to be recorded. 

A castrato is a type of classical male singing voice equivalent to that of a soprano, mezzo-soprano, or contralto. Young men who showed vocal talent were  castrated before puberty in order to prevent their voice from maturing.


Link to the 1902 recording of Mareschi.
