One of the greatest voices I've ever heard. Known as the lead singer of the great and underrated progressive rock band Renaissance, Annie's voice has sustained it's crystal clear clarity, diction, emotion, and range over the entirety of her over 40 year long musical career. She comes from a classical background and it definitely shows in her vocals, but she also a folk flavor to her poetic and dramatic delivery. Truly a virtuoso.

My internet is extremely (and weirdly) slow at the times, so I can't watch a video right now, but i remember some amazing singing by Annie here.

I don't remember exactly, but there's a beautiful A#5 here and a low notes as well (back in my teenage angst prog-ladden days I haven't pitched that note



Later part of Ashes are Burning the way, ashes are burning the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy, where Annie hits some strained, but really high notes. (Don't remember which, but when she's "singing the guitar solo")

Great D5 at 0:31, 1:11, incredible sustained E5 at 1:44, falsetto G5 at 2:11, 2:39 B5, later gliding up to C6 and D6! E6 at 2.50, F#6 at 3:17 and then again at 3:27, them some C6-D6 singing, and then at 3:53 sustained E6 gliding to two sharp F#6s! Later on more unbelievable E6-F#6 coloratura singing, and loooooooooooooooong sustained full E5 to end it all.

Had never heard of her. Fucking awesome.

I could help you if you post notes you're unsure about, she's got a cool voice.

Some A3s, easy C5s throughout and a good D5 at 5:20, breathy falsetto singing starting at 5:47 with D5s, E5s, F#5s, G#5s and Bb5s. If the last "la la la"s are her (I think they are), then also surprisingly easy and solid F#3s.

Yes, Jon Camp (the bassit) does some backing vocals, but the la la la's are hers indeed.

Would this be considered a full B5 at 6:29? It's got more force to it than the other B5's I've heard her do at least (and more so than the studio version). Sustained one at 6:42 too. Great singing.

God, that's a mystery to me...
Women's falsetto can be quite tough to distinguish.
Full? pale
