'Another feast of organ music played on a fine instrument. Herrick’s playing … can only be described as unfailingly brilliant … Hyperion has found … the key to the continued success of this hugely enjoyable and, at times, downright spectacular series of Organ Fireworks. Herrick is a musician with a powerful urge to communicate. And communicate he does, drawing on his enormous technical and intellectual resources to turn out performances which sometimes amaze, often astound but never fail to stimulate' (Gramophone)

'A definite recommendation for this latest Fireworks CD is in order' (International Record Review)

An Occasional Trumpet Voluntary
composer
after Jeremiah Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Patrick Gowers’ relatively small output includes several virtuoso works for the organ, music for the Three Choirs Festival, and a guitar concerto for John Williams. He is perhaps most widely known for his film scores, including those for a memorable series of Sherlock Holmes stories for television. This sizzling piece treats Jeremiah Clarke’s Trumpet Voluntary in the manner of a French toccata with a rumba rhythm thrown in for good measure.
