'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 8 in B flat major, BWV560
composer
by J T Krebs ?

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Like No 5 in G major the prelude includes a substantial pedal solo, although here the consistent use of one motif gives a much greater sense of unity. At the end of the triple-time fugue contrapuntal writing is abandoned in favour of a carillon-like ending, based on the second half of the subject.
