125 Emilio S. Belaval

The best Puertorrican Tenor of the 20th century. A delight to hear. With a beautiful flexible and agile voice of innate musicality and excellent technique. Performed in concert, opera, zarzuela and popular music with emotion and tenderness not found often. His velvety voice and exceptional diction made his performance delightful. His music fills once heart.
A musician and composer.

135 Anthony Warlow

The other greatest phantom. He's always been a great actor as well.

Good voice but he's a baritone

136 Benjamin Bernheim

Still young but he is due to be in the top tenors on the upcoming years

137 Virgilijus Noreika
138 Josef Locke

I wouldn't have bothered adding this singers name to a list that includes Lanza, Pavarotti and Domingo. But he is (was) certainly at least on a parr with Harry Secombe. He certainly should appear on this list above some of the lesser "classical" vocalists who have been added. Many will agree that Locke's was a thoroughly pleasing, true tenor voice owned by a real man with a talent to entertain.

139 Vernon Midgley

Vernon Midgley followed his father, Walter Midgley into the ranks of great British Tenors. He famously dubbed for actor Ned Beatty in the charming but fictional biopic Movie of Joseph Locke, "Hear My Song". Very convincingly, too!
Shortly before his retirement, he, along with his equally talented soprano sister Marietta, came to perform at Darlington (England). It was, for me, a privilege to be present to at last hear his fine, distinctive tenor that I'd only heard previously on the radio or, as stated, as "the voice of" on film.
I hope this prompts others to add some other great British (actual) tenors from a past era. David Hughes, anybody? Or what about David Whitfield? If Boe and Watson are in, then Hughes and Whitfield should be, as should John Hanson!

Vernon Midgley is wonderful in the collection of Albert Ketelby's work released many years ago on Angel EMI. - tonytenor

140 Hercules Smith

This spinto tenor from South Africa has a voice that shakes the soul. His notes soar. Yet it is the color and warmth in his voice, that want you to keep on listening. It is like a sweet double espresso. - sonambula9

I can feel all the emotion when he sings! Such a beautiful tone.

Great Voice, Moving Passionate

Number 1 in my book! Incredible Voice!
