Glenn Miller is an American oktavist. He was featured guest-soloist when the Illumni Men's Chorale sang a concert of Russian choral music in 2012. He is also featured on "The Sacred Spirit of Russia," a 2013 recording by Conspirare, the Austin TX based professional chamber choir under the direction of Craig Hella Johnson, which includes works by Gretchaninov, Kastalsky, Rachmaninov and Tchesnokov's "Do Not Reject Me In My Old Age."  Glenn may also be heard on the outstanding Vox Early Music Ensemble record "Extreme Singing: La Rue Requiem and other low masterpieces of the Renaissance." (Oktavism.com)

Truly one of the most respectable basses ever existed, one of the most resonant profundos I've heard, while his high range is equally astounding, as he's able to reach the third and fourth octave without any problems.

I especially love this song by him:
