Reviews

'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)
BWV723 is a gentle setting with the right hand playing a plain version of the chorale over a fugal left hand and pedal accompaniment. There is a harmonic and contrapuntal simplicity to the prelude, with the chorale singing out over the three lower parts, resulting in a meditative, gentle affect.
