'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)

Herr Jesu Christ, ich weiss gar wohl, BuxWV193
chorale prelude

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Chorale Prelude on ‘Herr Jesu Christ, ich weiss gar wohl’, BuxWV193 is remarkable for the way in which Buxtehude treats the melody: as usual, he gives it to the uppermost voice, but initially he leaves it unembellished. Over the course of the work, however, it becomes increasingly ornamented, and as it does so the lower voices gradually lose their initial liveliness and revert to their customary role of providing restrained support.
