'Just as, in my youth, I almost preferred to lick the scrapings from the bowls in which my mother had prepared cakes than to savout the finished product, so I am tempted almost to prefer these crumbs from the table of a great genius to those stupendous musical feats which are everybody's idea of the real J S Bach. Here is music every bit as worthy of close attention as anything Bach wrote for the organ. Herrick displays immaculate taste. This is playing of the very highest order … superlative artistry' (Gramophone)

'An attractive way of gathering up some of Bach's less obvious masterpieces, and they are all splendidly played, and recorded on a fine Swiss organ' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Christopher Herrick possède une technique supérieure et un grand toucher. Il nous fait parcourir ces pages de jeunesse avec une fraîcheur, une bonne humeur, un lyrisme et une entrain communicatif' (Le Monde de la Musique, France)
