Daniel Taylor

  • Countertenor


Daniel Taylor continues now with Jan Simons and Michael Chance. Daniel Taylor's Glyndebourne debut in the 1997 Peter Sellar's production of Händel's Theodora was greeted with critical praise and followed on an equally successful operatic debut in the Jonathan Miller production of Händel's Rodelinda (recorded for EMI). His other operatic roles have included Nerone in Monteverdi’s L’Incoronazione di Poppea, Eustazio and Gottfredo in Händel's Rinaldo, Athamas in Händel’s Semele, and Tolomeo in Händel's Giulio Cesare. In addition to opera, Taylor's repertory includes a wide range of sacred works, lute songs, and contemporary works such as Bernstein's Chichester Psalms and Sakamoto's Life.

He has performed with many leading orchestras and ensembles such as Les Arts Florissants, Les Violons du Roy, Les Voix Humaines, the American Bach Soloists, the Philadelphia Orchestra, Collegium Vocale de Ghent, the Academy of Ancient Music, the English Baroque Soloists and others. Daniel Taylor has made a good number of recordings including several solo recordings of songs by Dowland, Byrd and Purcell and a recording of Bach arias. He has also recorded soundtracks for La Corriveau, the Orphans of Duplessis and Cyrano de Bergerac.
