Daniel Collins - Countertenor


  • Daniel is an established professional freelance countertenor based in London. His voice has been described as both “rich” and “lyrical”, and is suited as much to Baroque oratorio as it is to French song. Daniel is currently in demand as both a soloist and a choral singer throughout the UK and Europe, singing regularly with many of the country’s top choirs and ensembles.

Daniel Collins - All Saints, Margaret Street
  For many years Daniel has sung professionally at All Saints, Margaret Street. London on Sundays and Holy Days. The present-day choir maintains the exacting standards of its predecessors, and is now led by the Acting Director of Music Jeremiah Stephenson. All Saints has an important link to Rachmaninov: Vale arranged Rachmaninov's Mass with English words, which the composer came to hear twice, in 1915 and 1923, declaring himself pleased with the result. It is still sung on Palm Sunday.
