'The magnificent 1741 Wagner organ in Trondheim's Nidaros Cathedral. In possession of some pugnacious reeds and a thrilling 'pleno', it's an ideal choice for a disc which includes some big-boned praeludia as well as Buxtehude's most extended organ work: the imposing Fantasia on the Te Deum whose architectural acuity Herrick unfolds with magisterial authority … Herrick's flair for apposite registration illuminates at every turn … sonorously splendiferous' (BBC Music Magazine)

'The ambitions Te Deum and the grand Praeludium in C major confirm Buxtehude's inspiring originality. No wonder the young Bach once walked 200 miles to hear him play' (The Observer)
The Chorale Variations on ‘Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren’, BuxWV213, comprise three ‘verses’. The first is a bicinium, the second has three voices, and the pedals are added for the third and given the melody.
