Reviews

'…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 Lacrimae is a version of John Dowland’s exquisitely doleful Flow my Teares. There are three sections each of which is repeated, with embellishments and subtle variations in the harmony to heighten the expressive effect.

Autre version de l’exquise plainte de John Dowland, Flow my Teares, Pavana Lacrimae est conçue en trois sections. Chacune est reprise, avec des ornements et de subtiles variations harmoniques pour en rehausser les effets expressifs.

Pavana Lacrimae ist eine Version von John Downlands köstlich trübseligen Liedes Flow my Teares. Es gibt drei Abschnitte, die mit Verzierungen und subtilen harmonischen Variationen wiederholt werden, um den emotionalen Effekt zu verstärken.
