A collaboration with the saxophonist, Jan Garbarek, has produced a unique fusion of styles in the highly acclaimed album Officium and its successor, Mnemosyne. 2010 saw the release of a third album: Officium Novum. Another ongoing project is a music theatre piece, I went to the house but did not enter, by the contemporary German composer and director, Heiner Goebbels. This has been staged all around Europe, in the USA and in South Korea. As a soloist Rogers has many recordings of Baroque repertoire to his name, in particular the ceremonial and the church music of Purcell with Robert King on Hyperion, and the Passion settings of Bach with Andrew Parrott, Stephen Cleobury and Roy Goodman.
His appearances over a solo career of forty years include the London promenade concerts and major venues in Britain, on the Continent and in North America, often as Evangelist in the Bach Passions. More recent recordings include a series with Café Mozart, a chamber ensemble based in Windsor and focussing on late 18thC song. His interest in the nature of vocal tuning and temperaments has resulted in ongoing lectures, choral workshops, the sleeve notes accompanying "Hilliard Live" and contributions to two books of essays published in 1992.
