Not only does he have a sweet voice, but he's also one of my sweetest friends - Hannah

82 Ferruccio Tagliavini

One of my favourite voices, Ferruccio has a Bjorling-like quality about his singing and he deserves more recognition than your list provides - listen to him, people, and be thrilled!

83 Christopher Dallo
84 Ermanno Balducci

Great talent from Assisi, not performing anymore, but great in the 80's and 90's.

85 Matthew Polenzani

The next Pavarotti, to my taste

86 Carlo Bergonzi

My opinion based only on available recordings- definitely in the top 10! The fact that he is rated this low must be related to facts about his career, character, or possibly a prejudicial agenda

One of the greatest and the last great Italian tenor!

He can sing and act. Very few on the list other than Plácido Domingo can do that.

Mexican tenor bests of bests supply of Maestro Pavarotti on the role of Rudolph on the play La Boheme by Puccini

90 Mark Vincent

Probably a very nice fellow and surely a singer that loves to sing, but he is not a tenor. Not right now anyway. His arias are all transposed down and while I am not adverse to that on occasion, Vincent does it because he clearly does not have the top voice to sing these pieces in their original key. His vocal technique is also inconsistent and while he can make some pleasant sounds, he would do well to get with a teacher that is a true voice builder. I wish him the best though for he is clearly committed to good music. - tonytenor

Hadn't hear about him until carols in the domain when he sang 'Raise me up'... Amazingly talented!

So much potential, really deserves more credit than he has

One of my favourite singers, especially loved 'hallelujah'

91 Joseph Schmidt

He should be ranked among the top ten tenors of all time! Because of his short stature (4 feet 11 inches), he rarely performed operatic roles on stage, preferring rather the media of radio and film. A Jew, he was able to escape Hitler's clutches by fleeing to Switzerland, only to die, at age thirty-five, in a Swiss refugee camp. (The antiSemitic Swiss directors of the camp refused to call for medical help when Schmidt fell ill with pneumonia.) Please check out Joseph Schmidt on YouTube; you'll be amazed at the beauty and range of his voice.

Magnificent voice, had circumstances been different he would have been fabulously famous, his voice seemed to know no limit, top10, without thinking

92 Javier Camarena

I guess this is a voter generated list because it has some very strange rankings. Camarena will be remembered as the best bel canto tenor in the second decade of the twenty-first century, and there is no competition. None. He's more than just high notes but a magnificent vocal musician.

Surely the next icon worldwide! He can reach every note, has a charming personality and conquers the stage as no one I've seen before, he will be number one soon!

Young lyric tenor of "angelic" voice

93 Virgilijus Noreika
94 The Weeknd The Weeknd Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.

He is currently number 1 pop artust in the world.his voice gets you into a different dimension..

95 Adam Levine Adam Levine Adam Noah Levine is an American singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5.
96 Myles Kennedy Myles Kennedy Myles Richard Kennedy is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Alter Bridge, and as the lead vocalist in Slash's current band: Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.

Proof that incredible voices exist in rock & metal as well. Not only is he one of the most powerful tenor voices in the world, he has a four octave range and can sing countertenor and baritone (and even occasionally bass) brilliantly as well.

97 Michael Crawford

One one can touch him when it comes to performing in Phathom of the Opera!

98 Charles Castronovo

Wonderful, brilliant. What a voice. People like Alfie boe should not even be in the same list as this wonderful man. He should be in the top ten. If you have never heard of him look him up.

Anyone who has watch him sing Rodolfo from "La Boheme" or arias from "The Student Prince" will know how excellent he is. And his work with the John Watson Orchestra is marvellous.

99 Ivan Kozlovsky

Great Russian with a sublime voice.

Nobody can "fa- dies" in 3-d octava, only Kozlovsky

100 Giuseppe Giacomini

An absolutely amazing example of the Arturo Melocchi lowered larynx school of singing. Giacomini has had a long career and this controversial vocal technique seems to have served him well. An exciting voice to hear. - tonytenor

One of the absolute greatest. Big and wonderful dramatic voice.

Great voice, strong. Unfortunately didn't sing much out of Italy.

Top Ten!
