Blaze and Taylor have slightly differing voices. Blaze’s voice has a rather English edge to it, something I rather like. Taylor’s has something of the more continental softer edges, but both seem to have a commonality of technique and purpose in these pieces. Their voices blend beautifully, though always remaining distinct. Each takes one of the solo Lessons, Taylor takes the upper part in the Lesson for two voices and Blaze takes the upper part in the Magnificat (also for two voices).

Bach; this includes choral literature by Johann Kuhnau, Franz Tunder, Nicolaus Bruhns and the early Cantatas of . Their first recording on the BIS label, François Couperin's Leçons De Ténèbres, was released in March 2005. Gramophone: "Beauty of this recording bows to no other.

Founded by Artistic Director and Conductor Daniel Taylor, the Theatre of Early Music (TEM) are sought-after interpreters of magnificent yet neglected choral repertoire from four centuries. Their appearances include stunning a cappella programs, with practices and aesthetics of former ages informing thought-provoking, passionate and committed reconstructions of music for historical events and major works from the oratorio tradition. The TEM’s first recording with BIS Records, Leçons de Ténèbres by Couperin, featured Taylor and Blaze and was released in 2005. The disc was received with critic acclaim: "Beauty of this recording bows to no other. This disc was followed in February 2006 by another BIS Records album featuring an original program of works from the Renaissance entitled Love Bade Me Welcome.
