Early Performance - trained or untrained

  • A question for our classical experts. All the recorded performances of early music I've heard use 'trained' voices. What evidence is there - if any - that early music was performed with trained voices rather than natural singing voices. In the last few decades of the last century there was a movement to use authentic instruments of the correct period to recreate performances of the time, but they still used trained voices.

    I think Trained voices were much better for recording acoustic records.
    Because they had normally fill the whole theater's with sound.
