Can anyone tell me, about female singing in churches pre Vatican II ? Was it totally banned? Theoretically but not practically? In some places and not others? Tolerated during some centuries? What is and was the situation in Orthodox churches?etc I would love to know, it’s hard to get a definitive answer. What has this to do with the thread you ask? Aural iconoclasm]

the short answer to the first question was NO. You had to have female voices if you were going to sing e.g. The Coronation Mass.

Second question: NO to that too.

Third question: depended on the style of music: if the Roman tradition had been adopted then there would be a male choir – e.g. the Palestrina in the Pro-Cathedral when founded.
