Summary
"Born in a belfry high in the Swiss Alps, Moses Froben and his deaf and mute mother ring the beautiful church bells each day. The townspeople assume Moses is also deaf, but shaped by the glorious music of the bells, he actually possesses a singular sense of hearing that makes him privy to any number of sins -- and puts him in grave danger. Moses finds refuge in a monastery's choir and becomes its star singer, but he falls under the power of a man who will do anything to preserve Moses' angelic voice forever. In this letter to his son, Moses recounts his life as a novice monk, the power and beauty of the music he loves, and a story of forbidden love."--Page [4] cover
Summary
The journey of an 18th century boy from his Swiss village to a career as a singer in Vienna. Castrated by a choirmaster to preserve his beautiful voice, he is brought into contact with a wealthy family, sparking an impossible love affair
