'Superlatives all round for the last instalment in this exuberant, outstandingly played series … excellent documentation, superbly recorded sound, an enchanting instrument and, of course, outstanding playing. The freshness and joie de vivre that Herrick brings to all Bach’s music makes this cycle a winner' (Gramophone)

'This is a most rewarding recital, very highly recommended' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

Little Prelude and Fugue No 4 in F major, BWV556
composer
by J T Krebs ?

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Like No 2 in D minor the prelude is cast in ternary form. The similarity of the opening motif to that in the last movement of the Pastorale, BWV590, has often been noted. The fugue subject has the characteristics of a north German fugue, particularly the rocking semiquavers of the second bar. As with the C major fugue the part-writing is not particularly developed.
