Castrati again

Well, castratos are certainly in the news at the moment. First the Exhibition at the Handel House Museum, then the TV programme, presumably there's a book on its way somewhere, but now we have the Exhumation.
By a curious chance, or peculiar sense of timing, the news has just been released about the exhumation of Farinelli's body for study as part of a year long project. I just hope that the body is not too decomposed and that the findings, when they are finally published are not just a damp squib.
