'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 Chorale Prelude on ‘Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ’, BuxWV189 is a Christmas work and based upon a melody that J S Bach was to set in the Orgelbüchlein. In the final bars, Buxtehude’s treatment of the melody is exuberant indeed, and the pedals participate in the joy of Christmas with some of the most animated passagework given to them in the chorale preludes.

Le Prélude-choral sur «Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ» BuxWV189—une œuvre de de Noël—est fondé sur une mélodie que J. S. Bach mettra en musique dans son Orgelbüchlein. Dans les dernières mesures, le traitement de la mélodie est vraiment exubérant et le pédalier participe à la joie de Noël avec l’un des passages les plus animés des préludes-chorals.

Das Choralpräludium über „Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ“, BuxWV189 ist ein Weihnachtsstück und das erste eines Trios von Präludien, die auf später von Bach für sein Orgelbüchlein verwendeten Melodien aufbauen. In den letzten Takten behandelt Buxtehude die Melodie wahrhaftig ausladend und lässt die Pedale mit einigen der lebhaftesten Passagen in seinen Choralpräludien an den Weihnachtsfreuden teilhaben.
