'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)

Erhalt uns, Herr, bei deinem Wort, BuxWV185
chorale prelude

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Chorale Prelude on ‘Erhalt uns, Herr, bei deinem Wort’, BuxWV185 is among the simplest and most enchanting of Buxtehude’s works in this genre: the melody, embellished and given to the right hand, is accompanied by the left hand and pedals, and its second and subsequent lines are introduced by fugal expositions whose material anticipates them.
