"The great countertenor David Daniels is mesmerizing as Oberon, singing with cool seductiveness," wrote Anthony Tommasini in a review of the Met's A Midsummer Night's Dream in the New York Times of April 24, 2002.

Met in New York, Martin Bernheimer wrote:
"Among the newcomers, David Daniels as Oberon dominated the proceedings,
his sly abandon bolstered by vocal finesse."
A recording of oratorio arias of Handel sung by David Daniels was released at amazon.co.uk on 5 August 2002 and at amazon.fr on 27 August 2002.  "In excellent sound, this disc should prove as popular as Daniels' glorious best-selling Handel opera arias," wrote Hugh Canning in the September 2002 issue of Gramophone.  It was released at amazon.com in the United States on September 17, 2002.

T. Hashimoto wrote about this recording for
examiner.com:  "You already know that I'm smitten with Daniels. There is not a note of empty display on this album of Handel oratorio arias in English. Singing in his own language, Daniels is even more expressive than usual. The buttery legato, the flawless pitch, the fiery displays of coloratura are audible in pieces from Semele,' 'Theodora,' 'Saul,' 'Jeptha' and the moving 'He was despised' from 'Messiah.' Yum"

The Virgin Classics recording Britten:  Canticles; Folksongs with David Daniels, Ian Bostridge, Christopher Maltman, and Julius Drake was released at amazon.co.uk on 5 August 2002.  It will be released at amazon.com on 5 November 2002.
