We're doing away with the baritenor term in general, but the larynx lowering is just it. He's certainly good at it, famously so. But the fact that he does lower his larynx to get that extra depth on those notes suggests he is deliberately trying to emulate a baritone sound, rather than naturally having much of a baritone property to his voice.
But yes, I was surprised, too. Never thought he could pull of an A1. Maybe not the strongest but still very cool.
Maybe not the best A1 ever but possibly the best from a tenor.
I actually wanted to add that fact, too. An A1 is really impressive for a tenor. Cant name another tenot who was able to go down for an A1 Overall I think Macca never gets the credits he deserve's for his singing.
