“But it was tenor John Bacon, making his debut with the project, who drew the most extraordinary aria in this cantata, an example of Bach at his most florid and demanding. Bacon was entirely confident, demonstrating agility, a fine sense of Bach style, and the solid, refined technique required to put across such astonishingly virtuosic music.”

The Vancouver Sun, Bach Cantata Project

“Ex-pat Vancouverite John Bacon has a beautiful lyric tenor voice that we heard only too briefly in the sailors’ scene.”

The Star, Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas

“Bacon’s beautifully-voiced Horace captured the style for the high-lying tenor line.”

Opera Magazine, Gounod’s La Colombe

“John Bacon has a voice with an incisive quality of high notes.   His was a deeply thoughtful interpretation, catching the fluctuating moods of the poem very well.”

Musical Pointers, Britten Canticle Concert

“Bacon showed a wonderful freshness and agility.”
