'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)

Allein Gott in der H÷h sei Ehr, BWV771
some if not all probably by A N Vetter

Introduction  EnglishFranšaisDeutsch
Opinion is divided over the authorship of these seventeen variations based on the chorale tune which Bach probably set more than any other. Some scholars assign just the third and eighth variations to Nicholaus Vetter, a pupil of Pachelbel who succeeded his teacher in Erfurt, while others feel that the whole piece could be his work. Whoever the composer was, the work employs most of the techniques for varying chorales and displays unbounded energy and invention.
