Concert review: The Sixteen presents Bach’s Magnificat at Rochester Cathedral, by Anna Morell

  • Posted by Anna Morell

The standout moments for me were Daniel Collins’ solos – an alto, his voice has an astonishing purity. ‘Et misericordia…’ can be touched by melodrama, but not a bit of it here. A soaring, drawing in to the mercy articulated with such emotion that I found my made-up eyes a little pandafied afterwards. His second solo accompanied by the most delicious flutes was similarly extraordinary. ‘Esurientes implevit bonis et divites dimisit inanes’ can be a bit… well, twee and inanes. This rendition had depth, texture, a sincerity and a serenity borne of lightness (again, that lightness – such a departure for the playing of most Bach).

Daniel performed with the Sixteen (October 2017) Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong.


Daniel performed with the Sixteen (November 2017) Lithuania, Estonia, Belgium.

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

Just over two decades ago, a group of London musicians took a good look at that curious institution we call the Orchestra, and decided to start again from scratch. They began by throwing out the rulebook.

Put a single conductor in charge? No way. Specialise in repertoire of a particular era? Too restricting. Perfect a work and then move on? Too lazy. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment was born.

2018 Daniel toured with The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment singing Bach St Matthew Passion in Germany, France, England and Poland.
