'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)

Canzona in D minor, BuxWV168
composer

Introduction  EnglishFranšaisDeutsch
The Canzona in D minor, BuxWV168 is a four-voice fugue for the manuals only, with a first section (bars 1–29) in 4/4 time and a second (bars 30–65) in 3/4, based on the subject of the first. The third (bar 66 to the end) reverts to 4/4 and is based on a new subject, which is answered by its inversion.
