This is confusing. First you say that can't be his voice, now you say it is/could be?
Why I enjoy watching The Andy Griffith Show at 2am, I'll never know.
Why yes, I do enjoy comical stylings of Anastasia :]

No. The military ceremony which he thanks the soldiers for having,likely is Nicholas. The 1902 French recording probably is not.

Either it is or it isn't. I'm tired, I'm going to go browse the survivors board.

Again, based on what evidence?

I was just stating my opinion.

Nothing wrong with that. Just remember to make it clear that it's your opinion and folks won't be quite so quick to jump down your throat. ;^)

Diane, posted a link to a youtube video of Nicholas' voice. It sounds much different than I have been led to believe; probably due to the movie Nicholas and Alexandra. His voice seems to have a lot of authority, at least imo.

That's true. I also espected to hear a different kind of voice, but not for the movie, but for the fact Nicholas was a tiny short man and I wouldn't imagine his voice would be so deep.

True, you always hear him described as tiny, short, so unlike his father, and how he lacked authority...from all that you expect to hear David Beckham or Taylor Lautner's voice.

I too was quite surprised he had such a deep voice. My father, who is about the same size, sings baritone, so I expected something similar.

Incidentally, if I was ever going to fancy David Beckham, the possibility evaporated the instant I first heard his silly little voice!

Russian site states that kid's voice ---- Aleksei's one can be heard between 39th and 41nd second of that recording, as well as Eduard Vladimirovich's and Nicholas'.

EDIT: This is speculation, I don't know what to think actually. Others?

Hello, "nena"!  I have, of course, heard this recording many times.  I have always noted that the timbre or tonal quality of one of the nearby individuals joining in the "Hurrahs" (at that time frame) does sound distinctively "different."  The Heir?  Who knows?  I agree that it is interesting speculation, but speculation all the same.  With best regards,  AP.

I highly doubt that Alexei can be heard on that recording. For me, it does not even sound like a child's voice. I think one of the persons got out of breath and lost his voice. That is why it sounds different. This is still speculation but in my opinion Alexei is not on that record. I really hope that record is at least genuine.

This is not speculation. The probability that the voice of the Tsarevich Alexei sounds in the video is very big.
Firstly it is certainly the voice of children. I have never heard "out of breath and voice" ( as Dust_of_History writes )  on the military men's  parade, even more to leave it on record.
I see no reason why the "bad" voice have left on the recording close to  the Emperor' voice, unless it is the voice of the Crown Prince.
Secondly, other children in the video and photos on the Russian parade does not occur.
And thirdly, Emperor Nicholas II often took Alexis with him to military parades . Beginning in 1915, when the Emperor took over the Supreme Commander during the war, almost always with him was the Crown Prince.
As, for example, in this clip:
