'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)

Es ist das Heil uns kommen her, BuxWV186
chorale prelude

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Chorale Prelude on ‘Es ist das Heil uns kommen her’, BuxWV186 begins in a sedate manner, but the ornamentation of the melody becomes exceedingly florid. J S Bach is anticipated, though, by the long-held note in the final bars, where the dignified winding-down is perhaps expressive of the idea of salvation in Christ.
