The soprano is the highest vocal range in classical music. The vocal range of a soprano is about 261-1046 Hz. It is derived from the Italian word ‘Sopra’ which means ‘above’.  Of all the Soprano music my most favorite one is Lascia ch’io pianga. Lascia ch’io pianga is an Italian soprano aria composed by George Frideric Handel .  Now, what is an aria? Aria is a solo in opera which can be performed with or without orchestral accompaniment. Lascia ch’io pianga is one of the most famous arias composed by George Friedric Handel. It made its appearance in 1705 in act 3 of Handel's opera Almira . Later in 1711 Handel used the music but changed the lyrics of the aria for his London opera Rinaldo which is now known as ‘Lascia ch’io pianga’. OUTLINE : Goffredo , the leader of the Christian cam
