Notes and Editorial Reviews

Taylor and his plangent tone remain a glory in this repertoire... [T]his is a disc guaranteed to soothe frazzled nerves on a busy day! ...[A]n indispensable disc for fans of Daniel Taylor and early music.

-- Joseph So, La Scena Musicale

---------

"[Daniel Taylor] does possess one of the most purely beautiful among current countertenor voices, and uses it with skill and poise..." -- Lindsay Kemp, Gramophone reviewing Lamento, Atma 22261

"Taylor’s voice on this disc should be very attractive to countertenor skeptics. Unlike the artifice that countertenors can be tinged with compared to altos or mezzos, the extraordinary purity of the Canadian’s voice leaves little
Read more rational reason to prefer a female interpreter..." -- Jens F. Laurson, FANFARE reviewing Taylor's earlier RCA release, The Voice of Bach
