Patrick Terry

The Boy: Written On Skin / Melos Sinfonia

“...a sensuous portrayal that combined subtlety and urgency, matched by singing of gorgeous potency – the quality of his top voice is very impressive.“

Classical Source

“Patrick Terry, in the less flesh-and-blood role of the Boy, floated seductively ethereal lines…”


“Patrick Terry’s plangently sung Boy..”

The Times


Ruggiero: Alcina / Royal Academy Opera

“Patrick Terry’s unusually crisp and liquid tone at a high pitch, even for a countertenor, made for an impressive realisation of Ruggiero, in the throes of infatuated pleasure on Alcina’s island. He is surely a singer to watch in other roles written for the great castratos such as Senesino, Carestini and Farinelli.”

“…Patrick Terry, whose consistent beauty of tone and heroic demeanour suggested the heir to David Daniels.”



Kathleen Ferrier Awards / Wigmore Hall

“Terry’s performance of L’enamourée by Reynaldo Hahn was one of the highlights of the evening: there was a real sense of rapture as Théodore de Banville’s poetry flowered from sparse gentleness to rich delight. The exquisitely smooth phrases enticed the listener; the lines were nimbly flexible but contoured with total control.”
