Low E bass singer found for choral work


Bass singer Tim Storms has won a competition to sing a note so low that it may never have been sung before.

Composer Paul Mealor launched the search last year to find a bass singer for his new choral work, which features a low E (41.203 Hertz) - over two octaves below middle C.

Storms beat a host of hopefuls to feature on the new album Tranquillity: Voices of Deep Calm with the St Petersburg Chamber Choir.
