Concert review: The
Sixteen presents Bach’s Magnificat at
Rochester Cathedral, 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 (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.
