How Low Can the Human Voice Go?

How low can the human voice go? - D2 is the answer. D2 is the lowest musical note of the human voice. The human voice is capable of producing some amazing sounds. Delicate organs in the mouth and throat can be taught to modify the color, tone, and timbre of a person's voice and provide quality and variety unmatched by even the grandest piano. To find the lowest extreme we must look to Osmin's aria in Mozart's Die Entf├╝hrung aus dem Seraila. More here at Ernest Alba's Llog

You can hear this low D2 note on this video of the Mozart Aria -

Here's another great video of Tim Storms singing this Way Down Low version of Amazing Grace -

Now going from a Low to a High we have this video of Georgia Brown's incredible 8 Octave range (earplugs may be required and put away the crystal wine glasses) -

Wikipedia says that an Oktavist (who sings an octave below the normal bass part) has a comfortable vocal range of E1-E3.
