'In the Presence' is Daniel Rodriguez' fifth album and his first for Blix Street (the label that introduced us to Eva Cassidy).

Tenor Daniel Rodriguez, an ex-policeman, rose to international fame when he sang at the funerals of his former colleagues who died during the terrorist attack of 9/11 and, a week later, performed for the President at Yankee Stadium along with Placido Domingo. Taken under the wing of Placido Domingo, Daniel Rodriguez has subsequently performed all over the world to great acclaim.

"Pie Jesu" and "Panis Angelicus" are sang as duets with New Zealand soprano Marla Kavanaugh and the musical accompaniment is performed by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.
