They would be better off as members of a singing four, with a comedy makeup for the younger man. His extreme height could be used to better effect under such an arrangement.
Both men have good voices, the shorter of the pair being particularly gifted in respect. His voice dominates the duets at times entirely drowning out his partner. The other man's voice has good tone and unusual volume, being true and of splendid quality. It was one of the few voices in the show that was not swamped by the rattle of dishes and eating implements in the dining room, and that would be no mean achievement even for Tascott.
