The Pastrami’s

This is not the only time in history men were castrated.  In my music class I found out that eons of years ago male children were castrated so they could become soprano’s.  Soprano’s were highly thought of by society and since they were castrated as very small children, they were raised as soprano’s.  This group of men were called the pastrami’s.  Look it up, very interesting.
