Reviews

'Christopher Herrick's runaway success as a recording artist can be explained not simply by his technical brilliance but also by his sympathetic and imaginative approach to individual venues and instruments … This disc will be eagerly added to existing Fireworks collections, and may be savoured by new converts as the musical equivalent of a vintage madeira' (Classic CD)

'Though this is a disc absolutely not to be missed by all lovers of the Edwardian organ and its music, I would say that it rises above this narrow musical bracket and is of great musical worth full stop!' (Organists' Review)
