|"Being gay affects my singing. It just does. That's a fact, and I don't agree with people who say it's not," says countertenor David Daniels in an interview with Martin Kettle in the Guardian of August 23, 2001.|
|David Daniels can be heard on a recent recording of works of Vivaldi, Stabat Mater, Nisi Dominus, and Longe mala, available from amazon.com.
Reviewing the recording for Boston's Bay
Windows of February 28, 2002, Jason Serinus wrote, "While there are many gifted countertenors on today's stages, no other seems to possess Daniels' combination of vocal beauty, artistic depth, and adventuresome repertoire."
|"The opera-going gay community here [in the UK] is very, very conservative. They love the voices and the costumes but they're not willing to stand anything that's different, or that stretches the imagination at all. It just kills me," said David Daniels as quoted in a 4 September 2001 classical.com article.|
|David Daniels has the role of Didymus in a Glyndebourne video of Handel's Theodora, with Dawn Upshaw in the title role and Lorraine Hunt Lieberson as Irene. Available on VHS (for U.S. and Canada) at amazon.com.|
|Stephanie Blythe's compact disc of Handel and Bach arias includes a duet with David Daniels, "Madre! . . . Son nata a lagrimar," from Handel's Giulio Cesare in Egitto. Jason Serinus wrote in Boston's Bay Windows of February 28, 2002: "It's a gorgeous, must-hear performance, with Daniels unquestionably offering the more emotionally expressive, sensitively shaded singing of the pair."|
|"David Daniels est un Jules César plein de fougue et d'impétuosité. Infinie souplesse et couleur de miel pour une voix qui saute tous les Rubicon, vocalises conquérantes et stratégie expressive d'une grande finesse," wrote Marie-Aude Roux in a review in Le Monde of September 18, 2002, of the performance of Giulio Cesare at the Palais Garnier with the notorious tape-recorder sabotage.|
|"David Daniels: Handel Arias (Virgin Veritas)--a compilation of Handel recitatives and arias outstandingly sung, accompanied by Roger Norrington and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Beautiful singing with clear insight by this wonderful countertenor."--Craig Rutenberg quoted as to his personal choices for the top-five Baroque vocal recordings, in an article by Louise T. Guinther in Opera News of August 2007.|
