Extension Of The Compass And Equalization Of Registers

The whole secret of both consists in the proper raising and lowering

of the soft palate, and the pillars of the fauces connected with it.

This divides into two resonating divisions the breath coming from the

source of supply, and forced against the chest, whereby it is put

under control, as it escapes vocalized from the larynx. It consists

also in the singer's natural adaptability and skill, in so placing the

palate and resonance of the head cavities, or keeping them in

readiness for every tone, as the pitch, strength, and duration of the

individual tones or series of connected tones, with their propagation

form, shall demand.
