Notes & Reviews:

Dietrich Buxtehude was famously visited by the young J. S. Bach who had walked from Arnstadt to Lubeck to hear the older man play. Bach stayed in Lubeck far longer than his employers expected, so captivated was he by the older man's artistry. The fact that Handel also visited Lubeck, in 1703, further underlines Buxtehude's stature. The indefatigable Christopher Herrick has embarked on a complete series of Buxtehude's organ music. The repertoire falls into two basic categories: free-composed works, and works based on pre-existing melodies.

'A magnificent sound ... Herrick's razor-sharp articulation is at one with Buxtehude's fastidiously chiselled counterpoint ... An auspicious beginning' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Herrick embarks on another epic for Hyperion, and the first instalment whets the appetite. Buxtehude's delicate contrapuntal intricacy is offset by occasional flamboyance ... The organ of Helsingør Cathedral, on Buxtehude's home ground of Denmark, offers an excellent colour' (Classical Music Magazine)

'Herrick displays great energy and a keen ear for registrational variety' (American Record Guide)
