BCS Next Concert


Charles Daniels, Tenor

The tenor Charles Daniels is best-known as an interpreter of Baroque music, but his narrative gifts have been praised over many repertoires. Among his 200 recordings are Monteverdi L’Orfeo with Andrew Parrott, Bach Matthau-Passion with the Bach-Stiftung, Handel Messiah and Schutz Christmas Story with the Gabrieli Consort, Lambert airs with Fred Jacobs, and many other works by Bach and Purcell.

His concerts range in scale from intimate performances: Lawes songs with Les Voix Humaines, works by Caccini and Kapsberger with Elizabeth Kenny, John Tavener Songs of the Sky; through  Purcell King Arthur (Tafelmusik), Handel L’Allegro (Basle, Lucerne, Zurich); to BBC Proms, Britten War Requiem (Canterbury, Salisbury), and Elgar Dream of Gerontius (Wroclaw, Cardiff).

His current season features Cavalli with Concerto Palatino in Utrecht,  the B Minor Mass across Canada with Alex Weimann, recording Gibbons complete Verse Anthems with Fretwork,  Purcell Faerie Queene with the Academy of Ancient Music, and new works by Graham Treacher and Evelin Seppar in London and Amsterdam.

Charles’s completion of Purcell’s unfinished Ode Arise my Muse was performed in Montreal in 2009 and his reconstructions of Gesualdo Sacrae Cantiones a6 have been performed in  Amsterdam’s Muziekgebouw. He moved with his family to Bath a few years ago and is delighted to be singing the St John Passion with Bach Choral Society. He is married with two daughters  and is a keen cyclist.
