'The Praeludium in F sharp minor brings the disc to an arresting conclusion. The performance is exhilarating and Herrick judges the pacing to perfect dramatic ends while also having the opportunity to show off his brilliantly agile pedal technique … this recording, along with its two predecessors in the series, is a first-rate addition to the catalogue. On this evidence, Herrick's next release should be eagerly awaited' (International Record Review)
The Canzonetta in G major, BuxWV172 is a nimble three-voice fugue based upon a subject consisting entirely of semiquavers and which seems prophetic of J S Bach’s organ fugue in D major.

from notes by Relf Clark © 2011

La Canzonetta en sol majeur BuxWV172 est une leste fugue à trois voix fondée sur un sujet tout en doubles croches et qui semble annoncer la fugue pour orgue en ré majeur de J. S. Bach.

Die Canzonetta in G-Dur, BuxWV172 ist eine leichtfüßige dreistimmige Fuge auf Grundlage eines ausschließlich aus Sechzehnteln bestehenden Themas in Vorwegnahme von Bachs Orgelfuge in D-Dur.
