Summary
"It is Florence, 1698, and Angelo Montegne has discovered the cost of having a beautiful voice. Soon the young castrato is at the center of court intrigue as he struggles with his new reality and those who wish to use him and his soaring soprano singing for their own purposes. As he comes to terms with his altered future, Angelo must choose between a life of fame as the protege of the Prince de Medici or a very different, far humbler destiny with the lovely daughter of the court composer. His happiness is doomed to be brief in the cut-throat world of music and politics"--Page [4] of cover
