Notes & Reviews:

'...other recitalists please follow suit!' (The Organ)

'Herrick portrays it as a persuasive, powerful and utterly compelling entity in which every note holds the listener in thrall, while this huge 96-stop Canadian organ has more colour than even Liszt, in his wildest dreams, could ever have imagined' (Gramophone)

'He brings enthusiasm and boundless energy to whatever repertoire he tackles. Apt registrations, dexterous clarity, and phrase-making metrical verve inform his performances ... The sound on this release is excellent' (Fanfare, USA)
