Greenleaf and Quinn, with their sprightly demeanors and ripe, pure vocal qualities, could certainly be the frontwomen for any bar band you like. They dived right in with two duos from Monteverdi’s Seventh Book of Madrigals, their voices intertwining like honeysuckle vines as they traded melodic phrases or conjoined in sumptuous counterpoint.
Monteverdi sung by twins? You could jump to that conclusion hearing this disc of vocal duets by Tenet’s perfectly matched sopranos Jolle Greenleaf and Molly Quinn, who could pass for sisters in the booklet photos. (…) They converge into what often feels like a single sound, aided by their near-telepathic musical rapport.
Drawing on their considerable performing experience, New York-based early music group Tenet have produced a well-rounded and impeccably performed collection of lesser-know canzonette and instrumental works by Monteverdi and his Italian contemporaries.
