Reviews

'This set marks a significant addition to the Christopher Herrick Bach archive and is a further manifestation of the happy collaboration between the artist and his excellent recording team' (Organists' Review)

'Hugely rewarding playing of the highest order' (The Scotsman)

'This disc is a 'must' for all who love this wonderful music' (Cathedral Music)
Christ, unser Herr is a hymn about baptism written by Martin Luther in 1541. The melody, which is older, featured in a hymnal by Johann Walter of 1524; it is heard unadorned in the pedals, while the waters of the Jordan are represented by the continuous flow of semiquavers in the left hand. The right hand presents a four-note figure suggesting the sign of the (baptismal) Cross.
