Notes & Reviews:

Daniel Taylor is one of the most sought-after countertenors in the world today. This album represents a compilation taken from the almost twenty recordings Taylor has made for the ATMA label since 1997, and includes music by Bach, Handel, Purcell, Dowland and Buxtehude, among others. Taylor is heard performing solo, as well as with such singers as Suzie LeBlanc and Jan Kobow, in what promises to be the definitive portrait of this gifted artist.

MusicWeb International, 9th September 2013
Taylor stands at a real remove from the sopranist virtuosi like Max Emanuel Cencic, and even David Daniels. He sits rather more in the Scholl School...There's a hint of Alfred Deller in the white bleaching of his tone at certain moments...If you'd like to trace Taylor's early career on disc this is a useful, though by no means definitive way to do it.
