CD 2: Weckmann: Conjuratio [MIR204]
Maria Keohane (soprano), Carlos Mena (alto), Hans-Jorg Mammel (tenor), Stephan MacLeod (bass), Maude Gratton (organ)
This is an outstanding recording of six fine and substantial sacred concertos and three equally powerful organ works, played on the notable Schnitger-based instrument at Steinkirchen… I really can’t imagine anyone with early music sympathies listening to the first thirty seconds of track 1 and not being hooked for the next hour or so.” - Early Music Review June 2013

CD 3: In Tempore Nativitatis [MIR243]
Bach: Christmas Cantatas, BWV110 'Unser Mund sei voll Lachens', BWV151 'Süßer Trost, mein Jesus kömmt', BWV63 'Christen, aetzet diesen Tag'
Maria Keohane (soprano), Carlos Mena (alto), Julian Prégardien, (tenor), Stéphan MacLeod (bass)
Almost everything about this disc is first rate. The playing of the musicians is outstanding throughout. The brass and drums in the big moments of 110 and 63 are thrillingly martial...Pierlot conducts all three cantatas with a beat that pulses with life, and his speeds are judged just right” - MusicWeb International, Dec 2013
