Messiah with Bach Collegium San Diego
"No one could touch the dramatic exuberance of countertenor Charles Humphries..."
Kenneth Herman
Handel's Cesare / Herheim, Germany
"Charles Humphries created one of the most outstanding vocal performances of the year for his portrayal of Ptolomeo in Herheim's production of Handel's Cesare."
Opernwelt Magazine, Germany
Recital with Concerto Copenhagen, Aarhus, Denmark
"...singers on Humphries level can do something extraordinary with the sound, it mixes with and stands out through the orchestral sound in a very special way both etheral and in it's smooth, pure beauty."
Aarhus Stiftstidende, Denmark
Recital with Concerto Copenhagen, Aarhus, Denmark
"Charles Humphries gave us a good run for our money; fine tone and he sang with excellent sense of drama. The audience gave unreserved and warm applause."
Dagbladet Boersen, Denmark
Alexander's Feast / Lufthansa Baroque Festival
"All it needs is irresistible performers - such as the soprano Deborah York, floating a lovely pure line; or the countertenor Charles Humphries, eerily evoking the pathos of the defeated Darius."
The Independent
Come Ye Sons of Art / Lufthansa Baroque Festival
"...Humphries, one of the finest of the young generation of countertenors, delivered the opening invocation eloquently in "Come Ye Sons of Art" and duetted exhuberantly with Chance in 'Sound the Trumpet'."
The Times
Kontrabande / Wigmore Hall
"...Humphries is gifted with not only a natural, beautiful voice, even throughout the compass, but also has the ability and resources to put it to expressive use."
The Times
Jephtha / Maulbronn Handel Festival
"...although all the soloists were first class, it must be said that they were put in the shade by Charles Humphries who has a voice that justifies travelling to hear this oratorio."
