Rebbe Pinchas of Koretz - QOTD

In honor of his Yahrzeit today, we bring this quote from Rebbe Pinchas of Koretz, found at the Two Tzaddiks website.

Rebbe Pinchas of Koretz said: “… in the name of the Arizal [Rabbi Yitzchak Luria zt”l], that he [the Ari] attained his lofty stature because he was the shaliach tzibbur [the one who led the prayers], and he sang beautifully. The entire congregation was attached to him through his Negina, and since he was attached to Hashem, he was able to uplift them all up to Hashem” [357].

As far as i know, it's said about the AriZ"l that he never raised his voice in tefillah, and on Shabbath he raised it very slightly.

so I don't know how to square that w/ Rebbe Pinchas Koritzer's quote.

(though it doesn't directly contradict, it does raise questions)

I'll try bli neder to do a little research on the topic.
