Notes & Reviews:

"...Here is a truly exceptional player, demonstrating a range of gesture only rarely heard on an organ disc. Admittedly the eclectic programming demands this; Walton's Orb and Sceptre is made into glittering display of technique, while Guilmant's intriguing transcription of the slow movement of Debussy's String Quartet is played with due introspection... Hyperion's sound is transparent and broad as ever..." ***** -BBC Music

'Hyperion has found... the key to the continued success of this hugely enjoyable and, at times, downright spectacular series of Organ Fireworks. Herrick is a musician with a powerful urge to communicate. And communicate he does, drawing on his enormous technical and intellectual resources to turn out performances which sometimes amaze, often astound but never fail to stimulate' (Gramophone)

'Another feast of organ music played on a fine instrument. Herrick's playing... can only be described as unfailingly brilliant' (Gramophone)

'Herrick lavishes his usual musical and technical skills on pieces both great and small'

'A definite recommendation for this latest Fireworks CD is in order' (International Record Review)
