A couple of weeks ago I came down with a pretty nasty cold in which I lost
my voice. Now, the cold is gone; but, unfortunately, so is my falsetto.
Prior to this event, I felt that I had a good falsetto, and could use it
with no real difficulty. After getting my voice back, I have tried to work
the upper register carefully in choir warmups, but it is not helping. Is
this a "lost cause", or is there a chance it could come back? Are there any
techniques that may help me gradually gain this portion of my voice again?
Being a bass/baritone, it is rare that I use it in choirs (except warmups),
but I work it quite frequently in voice lessons, which I had to drop this
quarter for fears of falling behind in my studies because of this.
