Recent concerts include A Clash of Titans, exploring Handel's early experience in Italy and his relations there with Vivaldi and D. Scarlatti; Glorious Chorus and Brass, which introduced Mr. Paget's new arrangement for chorus and brass ensemble of Charles Ives' General William Booth Enters into Heaven; and, in collaboration with the Westchester Chamber Orchestra, a concert-with-commentary entitled The Mozart Requiem: the Evolution of a Masterwork, illuminating Mozart's use of Handel and Bach as musical sources for the Requiem.

Chamber music concerts at festivals in Fredericksburg, Seattle and Pennsylvania have been devoted entirely to his work. His arrangements of songs by Alec Wilder, and his own composition The Mulligan Gambol appear on the CD Dreamscape (Koch International), featuring Metropolitan Opera soprano Heidi Grant Murphy and the Aureole ensemble.
