'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 Canzona in G major, BuxWV170 is a three-voice, three-section fugue based initially on an all-semiquaver subject. The second fugue is another of Buxtehude’s jigs, and the third is based on a subject beginning with a descending four-note figure followed by an octave leap.

La Canzona en sol majeur BuxWV170 est une fugue à trois voix et en trois sections fondée initialement sur un sujet tout en doubles croches. La deuxième fugue est encore une gigue de Buxtehude cependant que la troisième repose sur un sujet s’ouvrant sur une figure descendante de quatre notes, suivie d’un saut d’octave.

Die Canzona in G-Dur, BuxWV170 ist eine dreistimmige, dreiteilige Fuge, die anfänglich auf einem nur aus Sechzehnteln bestehenden Thema aufbaut. Die zweite Fuge ist eine weitere Gigue von Buxtehude, und die dritte verarbeitet ein Thema, das mit einer absteigenden Figur aus vier Noten mit anschließendem, Oktavsprung besteht.
