Daniel Thomson (Tenor) and Sam Brown (Lute) explore the musical rhetoric and soothing melancholy of John Danyel and his English contemporaries during the late Renaissance. Featuring John Danyel’s stunning work Like as the Lute Delights and John Dowland’s Sorrow Stay.

An alumnus of the Royal College of Music and CSI Lugano, he trained with Jakob Lindberg and Lorenzo Micheli. Sam has performed for major venues across three continents, including at Wigmore Hall and Konzerthaus Wien, as a recitalist, orchestral soloist, ensemble and continuo player. His playing has featured on several CD releases, as well as on radio, stage and film.


Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Daniel Thomson is a London based tenor soloist, recitalist and chamber singer. Known for his “clarity, agility and textual empathy” (Tony Wray, Limelight magazine, 2017), Daniel’s focus is on historically informed performance of music from the 16th to 19th centuries.


Released in early 2018 - Daniel’s debut solo album Secret Fires of Love, has been featured on BBC Radio 3 programme In Tune with Daniel as a BBC Introducing Artist. It was reviewed by MusicWeb International, listing it as a disc “of the utmost importance ... This disc is the result of much research of historical sources and deserves the attention of every performer ... Monteverdi's Si dolce è'l tormento is one of his most popular pieces, and has been recorded many times ... I am pretty sure that you will have never heard it the way it is sung here by Daniel Thomson.” Johan van Veen, - February 2019.


Daniel has performed as a soloist in various well-known festivals worldwide including the London Festival of Baroque Music, Utrecht Festival Oude Muziek, Brighton Early Music Festival, Meer Stemmig Gent and the MA Festival Bruges.
