'This boldly presented recital … holds the listener from beginning to end' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Herrick's technical mastery is stunningly apparent' (Contemporary Review)
Although the shape of the delightful little trio on Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier, BWV754, is clearly related to the structure of the chorale, the derivation of the motifs, apart from that in the first bar, is much looser.

from notes by Stephen Westrop © 1999

Quoique la forme du délicieux petit trio sur Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier, BWV754 soit nettement affiliée à la structure du choral, la dérivation des motifs (hormis dans la première mesure) est beaucoup plus vague.

Français: Hypérion

Auch wenn die Form des reizenden kleinen Trios über Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier BWV 754 dem Aufbau des Chorals eindeutig verwandt ist, geht die Ableitung der Motive außer im ersten Takt wesentlich lockerer vonstatten.
