'A magnificent sound … Herrick's razor-sharp articulation is at one with Buxtehude's fastidiously chiselled counterpoint … an auspicious beginning' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Herrick displays great energy and a keen ear for registrational variety' (American Record Guide)

'Herrick embarks on another epic for Hyperion, and the first instalment whets the appetite. Buxtehude's delicate contrapuntal intricacy is offset by occasional flamboyance … the organ of Helsingør Cathedral, on Buxtehude's home ground of Denmark, offers an excellent colour' (Classical Music)

Ich dank dir schon durch deinen Sohn, BuxWV195
chorale fantasia

Introduction  EnglishFranšaisDeutsch
The Chorale Fantasia on ‘Ich dank dir schon durch deinen Sohn’, BuxWV195 is fundamentally different from that on ‘Nun freut euch, lieben Christen gmein’, its richly contrapuntal four-voice texture having origins in the vocal music of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The four sections correspond with the four lines of the tune, each giving the relevant line a motet-like treatment.
