Subject:        Eunuchs

Thank you all for the info. regarding the possible meaning(s) of the
reference to eunuchs in Twelfth Night.

What I am really interested in is trying to figure out what
Shakespeare's audiences may have thought of the reference, if anything.
How were the castrati viewed in Elizabethan England? Any info.  or
sources will be appreciated.
