TENET UNO+ONE
Perfectly matched sopranos Jolle Greenleaf and Molly Quinn ... brilliantly sequenced, moving from one emotional zone to another with an operatic sense of peaks, valleys, tension and release ... incredibly conversational. Both vocalists sing in what feels like their first language, their profound ease with the early Baroque idiom ... rendered with crystal-clear precision ... a complete success. - Gramophone Magazine Buy it now on Itunes or Amazon

Trinity Wall Street

TENET NYC
"The cast of excellent singers was led by Ms. Greenleaf, a soprano. In the motet “Pulchra es” she joined her fellow soprano Molly Quinn in a duet of arresting sweetness and simplicity, their voices carefully matched in purity and expression. They delivered the difficult passaggi — the throaty rhythmic quickening of early-17th-century vocal music — with practiced precision." (Green Mountain Project, Vespers of 1610) Corinna Fonesca-Wollheim for The New York Times

REVIEWS

Critical acclaim and praise for Molly Quinn.

Molly Quinn made the most of her flickering and then soaringly riveting appearances in front of the choir, in and out of Dominick DiOrio’s I Am, a prayerfully-tinged, bittersweet launching pad for her literally spine-tingling flights to the upper registers as it wound up on an optimistic note.

“Molly Quinn’s light, crystalline soprano was ideal for the role of Belinda”

“And Molly Quinn, soprano, brought a prim, radiant sweetness to the finale’s childlike vision of heaven.” Mahler’s Fourth Symphony.

Quinn’s account of “Sì dolce è il tormento” (“So sweet is the torment”) was full of ardent directness.”
