Christopher Herrick (organ)
Recording details: January 2006
Eugene McDermott Concert Hall, Morton H Meyerson Symphony Center, Dallas, USA
Produced by Paul Spicer
Engineered by Andrés Villalta
Release date: August 2006
Total duration: 1 minutes 41 seconds


'As we have come to expect from Christopher Herrick and Hyperion everything is done to the highest standard. The varied and exciting programme is convincingly played, making full use of the extensive tonal spread of the organ, whilst the accompanying programme notes are both comprehensive and interesting … another fine organ firework display, which I'm certain readers will enjoy' (Cathedral Music)

'Christopher Herrick is his usual inimitable self, combing a sense of fun with a spontaneous grandeur which is at times, totally arresting. The listener is also regaled with the impressive sound of the Lay Family Organ in Dallas, Texas, a 4535-pipe monster. Volume XII please?' (Classical.net)

'Some wonderful pieces to hear … the rich sounding recording makes the most of the fireworks' (Essex Chronicle)
Matthias Nagel (b1958) held a post as Kirchenmusikdirektor in his native Germany until 2003, when he chose to embrace a freelance career as lecturer, composer and arranger. His Danke-Swingfüglein, a fughetta for the manuals only, is from Jazz Inspirations for Organ.
