She has been featured in several projects, including the Green Mountain Project, the TENEbrae series and their duo program Uno + One: Italia Nostra, recorded and released this fall by Avie Records to critical acclaim and dubbed as an “Album of the Week” by WQXR.

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

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
