'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)

Puer natus in Bethlehem, BuxWV217
chorale prelude

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Chorale Prelude on ‘Puer natus in Bethlehem’, BuxWV217, a Christmas work, is among the simplest of Buxtehude’s chorale settings. The melody is only slightly embellished, and its lines are separated by the shortest of interludes, but there is subtlety in the way in which the pedals and the melody are at two points briefly in canon.
