Alexander Chance - Drop not, Mine Eyes - Opernwelt

Like his famous father Michael Chance, the 30-year-old also possesses a finely glazed, easily accessible, elegant and nevertheless sustainable counter voice; with its silvery timbre, it is perfect for the world-weary song art of the Elizabethans, which revolves around lament, suffering and mourning ... Chance is a master at articulating the declamatory word pointedness of the songs so beguilingly that the supposedly unmusical, consonant-rich English can compete effortlessly with the musical eloquence, even enchantment, of Italian.
