Den amerikanske sangeren David Daniels er blant verdens ledende kontratenorer. Han fikk sitt internasjonale gjennombrudd med Berlioz "Les Nuits d’Ete" i 2004, men debuterte allerede i 1992 og har gjort de fleste store operarollene som synges av kontratenorer. Denne innspillingen med verker av Bach fant sted i London september 2007. Han har en sterk og virtuos stemme som gjør at han egner seg godt til et barokkrepertoar som dette. CD-en inneholder bl.a. Messe i b-moll, utdrag av Johannespassionen og Matteuspassionen m.m
Gloria by Antonio Vivaldi( )

3 editions published in 1993 in 3 languages and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty years after it was first released by Archiv in 1987, Trevor Pinnock and the English Consort's coupling of Vivaldi's Gloria and Scarlatti's Dixit Dominus still sounds new, vital, and even contemporary in this 2007 reissue. Pinnock's tempos are lively, his lines clean, his textures clear, and his rhythms crisp. The English Consort's playing is light, tight, suave, supple, and, when the piece calls for it, powerful. The Choir of the English Consort's singing is sensitive, strong, and excellently enunciated. Soprano Nancy Argenta is a standout among the singers, and the instrumental soloists, especially clarion trumpeter Crispian Steele-Perkins, are uniformly strong. Archiv's early digital sound was bright, deep, and detailed when it was first released, and because this is an un-remastered reissue of the same disc, it remains the same. If you want to hear a coupling of Vivaldi's Gloria and Scarlatti's Dixit Dominus, Pinnock's was then and remains now a fine first choice
