Top Ten Greatest Male Tenors

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Paul Potts

His beautiful voice from within brings tears to my eyes. A joy to hear.

I've seen Mr. Potts live in Person. To say he is incredible is not giving him justice. Wonderful Voice and should definitely be in the top 5!

The Best and he sings from the heart

When Paul Potts sings, he touches the depths of my heart and brings tears to my eyes. Even today listening to Paul sing Nessum Dorma sends me back to the first time I heard him on Britain's Got Talent.

Without a doubt, currently one of the best Tenors in the world. He sings with passion and speaks to the heart. If you close your eyes and just listen, the transports you to another world...just with his voice. Currently with The Tenors, they primarily sing has a group but with a unique difference - at each concert they will sing individual songs which highlights even more the beauty of his voice. Thank you to his mother and father for giving him the beautiful gift for which he now gives us this incredible gift.

This gifted tenor has not gotten all of the attention he deserves, probably as a result of being a part of an ensemble (The Tenors) rather than a solo artist. But anyone who has ever heard his rendition of Caruso could not help but fall in love with this talented young man.

His voice cannot be compared to any other. It is mesmerizing, real and pure and so healing. It moves you to tears and to relaxation at the same time

His heart and soul are in his voice. I have cancer and I'm not going to survive it. Remi makes my days full of love.

Urs lyrical voice is filled with emotion - especially the romantic ones. He can portray strength and vulnerability equally well. I love how his eyes twinkle when he sings, reflecting the emotions of his voice and heart whether it is pop, opera, heavy metal, or a Broadway show tune. There are few tenors who can sing this well and manage to touch your very being with his voice... It is magical beyond words.

First, his last name is spelled Buhler. Second, he is so amazingly gifted, it's hard to put into words the feelings he evokes when he sings. And if you're lucky enough to be watching him while he's singing, you can see the emotions in his eyes and playing across his face. His voice is so unusual, it's not possible to compare him with standard tenors. He takes my breath away. SANDRA

Listening to him is like listening the echo of a voice, not the voice itself. He has the talent!

A very versatile voice with an unusual timbre. There are few tenors who can express a range of emotions like him.

Probably the only hope in pop music left. - Sjinkiie

If you rate Jussi B. as far down as13, you have a tin ear and no business rating tenor voices.

128 Luigi Alva

Most beautiful phrasing. He sang Don Ottavio in the Giulini legendary Mozart's "Don Giovanni" to Joan Sutherland's legendary Donna Anna. Alva's line is the most elegant of any tenor I've ever heard. He should be on the top 10 at least.

Excellent lyric tenor, almost a tenore di grazia. Wonderful in the Mozart and Donizetti repertoire. He recorded an album of Neapolitan canzoni which was quite good. - tonytenor

The greatest british tenor

132 James King

Great American dramatic tenor.

133 James McCracken

The very first Otello I had the joy of hearing, and to this day no one else sounds like a proper Otello. There is something missing in all the rest except Melchior perhaps. McCracken's recording of Otello with Fischer-Dieskau and Gwyneth Jones is incomparable!

MaCracken was a wonderfully passionate singer. His top tended to sound rather broad instead of rounded and full. An iconic interpreter of Otello, McCracken was one of those American singers who had to leave the MET in order to be "discovered" by the MET. General manager (at the time) Rudolf Bing was a bit of an SOB and would not cast McCracken in leading roles and only used him as a comprimario. MacCracken left the U.S., went to Europe, with his wife the very fine mezzo Sandra Warfield, and established himself in virtually all the dramatic tenor roles. He then returned to the U.S. - Bing was under to much pressure now that McCracken was a star - and re-debuted at the MET as Otello. There is a recital album, on Angel EMI of him doing Celtic songs with just piano accompaniment which is wonderful. As mentioned by another poster, the recording of OTELLO James McCracken did back in the 1960s is indeed wonderful. It also boasts the very unique casting of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau as Iago. ...more - tonytenor
