TENET is one of New York’s preeminent vocal ensembles. Under artistic director Jolle Greenleaf, TENET is winning acclaim for its innovative programming, virtuosic singing and command of repertoire that spans the Middle Ages to the present. TENET features distinguished soloists who shine in one-voice-to-a-part singing and as joined voices in small ensembles. TENET is ensemble in residence at the historic St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church on New York City’s Upper West Side where they have presented critically acclaimed performances such as selections from Claudio Monteverdi’s dazzling collection of sacred music, Selva Morale e Spirituale, music by the Renaissance master Nicolas Gombert and 20th century groundbreaker Francis Poulenc, an annual Christmas concert that has become a local holiday favorite, and a concert in honor of the 400th anniversary of Giovanni Gabrieli’s death with New York Polyphony and the Dark Horse Consort, in conjunction with the Five Boroughs Music Festival. TENET made their Metropolitan Museum of Art debut last February in a program celebrating their Italian Portrait exhibition.
TENET’s 2012-2013 offerings have included two performances of music from Claudio Monteverdi’s Eighth Book of Madrigals entitled Madrigals of Love and War, multiple performances of our 2012 Christmas concert "Starry Night," the Green Mountain Project’s Vespers of 1610 in New York City and Cambridge, MA with music director Scott Metcalfe, “A Feast for the Senses” at Gordon College and Gregory Spears’ Requiem at Park Avenue Christian Church. TENET recently released the live recording of the Green Mountain Project’s Vespers of 1640 and plans to release a CD of 17th century Italian music by Claudio Monteverdi and his contemporaries this spring featuring the sopranos of TENET – Jolle Greenleaf and Molly Quinn. Engagements for 2013-2014 include performances of “Bach and his Predecessors” for the Berkshire Bach Society and Pequot Library, a tour of early 17th century Italian music at the prestigious Festival Casals de Puerto Rico, soloists for J.S. Bach’s B Minor Mass under John Maclay with New York’s Choral Society, and TENET will appear at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall in a performance of Avo Pärt’s Passio in April of 2014.
