Biography

Charles Daniels is an English tenor, particularly noted for his performances of baroque music. He is a frequent soloist with The King’s Consort, and has made over 25 recordings with the ensemble on the Hyperion label.

Born in Salisbury, Charles Daniels attended the choir school at King’s College, Cambridge where he was a chorister, then Winchester College for his secondary education. He returned to King’s College, Cambridge for his university education, where he was a Choral Scholar, reading Natural Sciences and Music. After taking his degree, he studied under Edward Brooks at the Royal College of Music in London where he was awarded a Foundation Scholarship.

His concert and recording repertoire extends from the Middle Ages to 20th century composers such as Luigi Nono and Benjamin Britten. In December of 2001, he was the tenor soloist in a performance of Wojciech Kilar’s Missa pro pace, performed in the Vatican in the presence of Pope John Paul II. However, he is best known for his interpretations of baroque music, and in particular for the role of Evangelist in the St Matthew Passion and the St John Passion by J S Bach. Daniels has made frequent concert appearances at the Wigmore Hall and the BBC Proms, in addition to performing frequently in both European and North American music festivals.
