Reviews

'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)
Georg Neumark’s chorale ‘He who allows God alone to reign in him will be wonderfully supported by him’ was sung on the fifth Sunday after Trinity. These two contrasted settings partner each other like movements from a chorale partita. Both have an elaborated version of the melody in the soprano, and BWV690 builds a sequence of running figures in up to four parts underneath it.

Dieser Choral von Georg Neumark wurde am fünften Sonntag nach Trinitatis gesungen. Diese beiden kontrastierenden Vertonungen sind wie Sätze einer Choralpartita miteinander verbunden. Beide enthalten eine erweiterte Version der Melodie für die Sopranstimme, und BWV690 baut hierunter eine Sequenz laufender Figuren von bis zu vier Stimmen auf.
