Tenor Anthony Dean Griffey produced large and gleaming tone and displayed subtle musical and verbal intelligence. He is an altogether exceptional artist.” – Boston Globe

Britten – WAR REQUIEM

Collegiate Chorale, New York, NY

“The baritone Håkan Hagegård, with the unenviable task of taking the Luxon role, sang strongly and made a good fit with the tenor Anthony Dean Griffey, plangent in tone.”

James R. Oestreich, The New York Times, November 13, 2004

“Tenor Anthony Dean Griffey, expert in Britten’s works, looked to be close to tears at times, a pained look on his face, eyes squinting into shadows. He had Britten’s cadence down perfectly, and he sang beautifully and emotionally.”

Ronald Blum, Associated Press, November 12, 2004

“Anthony Dean Griffey does well in Britten’s ‘Peter Grimes’ and other music the composer crafted for his lifelong lover, Peter Pears. I greatly prefer the healthy sound Griffey makes to Pears’ bloodless tone on recordings, and the American tenor certainly has the technique and diction to channel the idiom successfully.”

David Shengold, Gay City News, November 25-December 1, 2004

“Griffey sang with clarity and sweetness.”
