David Goode (organ) December 2016 Release


'Not only has Herrick found a simply ravishing Swiss organ which he uses with impeccable good taste, but the Hyperion team have come up with a top-notch recording. Once again they've given us a disc which combines consummate musical insight and technical mastery with sheer unalloyed listening pleasure' (Gramophone)

'Herrick has once again shown that his command of the Bach idiom is as total as any other contemporary organist's … An impressive addition to a milestone collection' (Classic CD)

'An indispensable collection and one I should not be happy to be without' (Organists' Review)

'Bach at his most tuneful and diverting and Herrick's style is particularly suited to them' (Soundscapes, Australia)
The text ‘Solely to God on high be honour and glory’ is a paraphrase by Nikolaus Decius published in 1522 of the Gloria. This Bicinium sets the simple lines of the chorale as a single strand in the right hand against an elaborately contrived ‘cello’ obbligato for the left hand.

Der Text ist eine Paraphrase des Gloria von Nikolaus Decius, die 1522 veröffentlicht wurde. Dieses Bicinium setzt die einfachen Zeilen des Chorals als einzelne Stimme für die rechte Hand, während die linke Hand ein reich ausgearbeitetes ‘Cello’-Obligato erhält.
