I am reading an old volume, Tradition and Gigli, by E. Herbert Caesari, author too, of Voice of the Mind. In Tradition he advocates time and again the sense of up and back as the singer goes over the passaggio, that is, through the upper middle notes and into the high range. Now a very famous English author and pedagogue, Frederick Husler, advocates the back of the neck as an ideal tonal “placement,” that is, the author says, if one chooses to think about it at all. This sense of up and back, I think, is a concomitant of F. M. Alexander’s forward and up, two sides, that is, of the same coin, anchored opposition.
