Wo soll ich fliehen hin, BWV694


Christopher Herrick (organ)
Recording details: April 1995
Jesuitenkirche, Lucerne, Switzerland
Produced by Paul Spicer
Engineered by Paul Niederberger
Release date: April 1996
Total duration: 3 minutes 0 seconds


'Not only has Herrick found a simply ravishing Swiss organ which he uses with impeccable good taste, but the Hyperion team have come up with a top-notch recording. Once again they've given us a disc which combines consummate musical insight and technical mastery with sheer unalloyed listening pleasure' (Gramophone)

'Herrick has once again shown that his command of the Bach idiom is as total as any other contemporary organist's … An impressive addition to a milestone collection' (Classic CD)

'An indispensable collection and one I should not be happy to be without' (Organists' Review)

'Bach at his most tuneful and diverting and Herrick's style is particularly suited to them' (Soundscapes, Australia)
As with BWV646 above, Bach takes his cue from the word ‘flee’ in the first line of the chorale (sung on later Sundays after Trinity). The two hands ‘flee’ after each other in the manner of a two-part invention, while the pedals have the chorale melody.

Wie das oben erwähnte BWV646, faßt Bach das Wort ‘fliehen’ in der ersten Chorallinie als Stichwort auf (das Stück wurde an späteren Sonntagen nach Trinitatis gesungen). Die beiden Hände ‘fliehen’ hintereinander nach Art einer zweistimmigen Invention, während die Pedaltöne die Choralmelodie erklingen lassen.
