'…this is really inspiring playing with some compelling insights into the structure of Sweelinck's often monumental pieces.' (Early Music Review)

'This set is obviously the outcome of a thorough, deeply pondered approach. It more then renders justice to Sweelinck's music by bringing out its variety, inventiveness and fanciful exuberance. Strongly recommended.' (Fanfare, USA)

'Herrick, who is up to all the technical demands made by the music, aptly uses early keyboard fingering, while his carefully chosen registrations … are a real treat for the ear' (Goldberg)

Pavana Philippi
composer

Pavana Philippi  [6'49]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In Pavana Philippi Sweelinck takes a pavane that Peter Philips wrote while incarcerated in prison in the Hague, and transmutes its characteristic keyboard figuration into something more vocal in style. At the end he appends a variation of his own, reverting to a more overtly keyboard manner.
