'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)
Nun freut euch, lieben Christen gmein, BWV755, is a very straightforward setting of the Advent hymn, whose occasional syncopations suggest joy at the incarnation of the Saviour.

from notes by Stephen Westrop © 1999

Nun freut euch, lieben Christen gmein, BWV755, une fort simple mise en musique de l’hymne de l’Avent, voit d’occasionnelles syncopes suggérer la joie devant l’incarnation du Sauveur.

extrait des notes rédigées par Stephen Westrop © 1999
Français: Hypérion

Nun freut euch, lieben Christen gmein BWV 755 ist eine sehr geradlinige Vertonung des Adventsliedes, deren gelegentliche Synkopen Freude über die Menschwerdung des Erlösers andeuten.
