 Clef at AllExperts
The word treble is also used of people, especially in the Anglican and English Catholic traditions, to refer to a boy who sings as a soprano, in contrast to the term boy soprano used elsewhere.
The soprano clef uses the C clef to assign the note middle C to the bottom line of the staff.
In this case the soprano and alto voices occupy the upper staff, using the treble clef, and the tenor and bass voices occupy the lower staff, using the bass clef.

 Categories of Voice
From the mid-16th century to the end of the 18th century, the high male voice was in such demand that boy sopranos who showed some promise were castrated before puberty to prevent their voices from changing.
Due to strictures against women singing in churches from the middle-Ages onward, this style of males singing in the falsetto range, with the total absence of chest resonance was indispensable to the religious music of Machaut, Lully, des Pres, and later Monteverdi.
A soprano with vocal problems may have a speaking pitch around C or D below middle C! When I vocalize them in this area, they claim it is too low, but that is where they are speaking.

 Seattle Opera
It is very new for a male soprano to sing the role but I have found that directors are very excited about having “a man play a man.” Even though this does not seem like a very radical thought, the role has been performed only by women, as a pant role, up until now.
I think some singers may have developed their voice into a countertenor style rather than a male soprano style because there was no call for male sopranos.
The director didn’t want a boy soprano to sing the role, because he felt that a child might not have the acting experience that he wanted and the voice would stick out too much from the rest of the cast.

The music association began prohibiting boys from singing soprano or alto, and girls from tenor or bass two years ago, according to the local television news station, KXAS-TV.
The association, which claims to offer quality musical experiences for students and to cultivate universal appreciation and lifetime involvement in music, has taken a step backward by denying Rawls the chance to capitalize on his strengths and talents.
Rawls, who sings in an octave and a half higher than most boys his age, has earned several distinctions for his singing including first place as a soprano in the University Interscholastic League’s competition for two consecutive years.
