    Joseph Calleja is relatively new on the scene and Jonas Kaufmann is controversial (ie, not as universally loved as, say, Corelli, Pavarotti or Caruso)

    Not always. There have been plenty of terrific tenors over the past few decades that most people have never heard of. I'm thinking of people like Sabbatini, Wieslaw Ochman, Virgilius Noreika, and John Alexander, not to mention tenors stuck behind the Iron Curtain. If you doubt that these are "top tenors", go listen to a few of their recordings.
