Charles Daniels (Tenor)

Nationality: British

Born in Salisbury in 1960, English tenor Charles Daniels trained at King’s College Cambridge (where he was a boy chorister and later read Natural Sciences alongside music) and the Royal College of Music. He specialises in baroque music, and is particularly renowned for his performances of the Evangelists in Bach’s St John and St Matthew Passions (both of which he has recorded several times, including for the Yorkshire Baroque Soloists); he also appears as a soloist on Masaaki Suzuki and John Eliot Gardiner’s acclaimed series of the Bach cantatas, on Montréal Baroque’s ongoing cycle of the same works, and on The Purcell Quartet’s set of Bach’s early cantatas.

Daniels’s discography also includes the Bach Magnificat with Andrew Parrott and the Taverner Consort and Players and the Netherlands Bach Society and Jos van Veldhoven, the Christmas Oratorio with Diego Fasolis and I Barocchisti, and the Epiphany Mass with Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort & Players.
