'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 7 in A minor, BWV559
by J T Krebs ?

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The several disparate elements which make up the prelude include figurations typical of the south German toccata style of Pachelbel as well as reminiscences of the Prelude and Fugue in A minor, BWV543, and the Aria, BWV587. The dancing fugue at first appears to be destined to be built on a large scale but is cut off somewhat abruptly after the first entry of the pedals.
