|abstract: ||There has not always been an awareness of the relationship between sexual hormonal concentrations and quality of the singing voice in the western classical singing world. Despite evidence for this connection existing since the 3rd century BC, there are still controversies and a lack of information about this area, especially
regarding the effects on the female western classical singing voice. The aim of this
paper is to shed light on the importance of undertaking further research in this field. Therefore, a revision of previous research, exploring the extent to which sexual hormonal concentrations can contribute to the wellbeing of a singer’s voice and career, from both psychological and biological points of view, will be
presented. Additionally, further investigation in the field of hormonal related medication and its effects on singing voice quality will be undertaken.|
