'The Praeludium in F sharp minor brings the disc to an arresting conclusion. The performance is exhilarating and Herrick judges the pacing to perfect dramatic ends while also having the opportunity to show off his brilliantly agile pedal technique … this recording, along with its two predecessors in the series, is a first-rate addition to the catalogue. On this evidence, Herrick's next release should be eagerly awaited' (International Record Review)

Danket dem Herren, BuxWV181
chorale variations

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Chorale Variations on ‘Danket dem Herren’, BuxWV181 comprise three sections or ‘verses’. In the first, the unembellished melody is given to the highest of the three voices; in the second it is the middle voice (unusually for Buxtehude) and played on an eight-foot pedal stop; and in the third it is the lowest voice.
