Notes & Reviews:
Christopher Herrick's acclaimed series of Buxtehude's music for organ is now complete with this fifth and final volume. Here he returns to the composer's (disputed) home country of Denmark and the organ of Mariager Klosterkirke. Highlights include the magnificent Praeludium in C major, BuxWV137 (known to English-speaking organists as the Prelude, Fugue and Chaconne in C) and the Chorale Fantasia on the Christmas melody Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ, BuxWV188 - among the longest and most elaborate of Buxtehude's chorale settings.

The Hyperion engineers seem to have an uncanny ability to record organs and choirs to the best possible advantage, and that is the case here. The sound is rich and full. There are some exquisitely beautiful quieter combinations and individual voices that are quite luscious.
