Notes and Editorial Reviews

'Christopher Herrick's runaway success as a recording artist can be explained not simply by his technical brilliance but also by his sympathetic and imaginative approach to individual venues and instruments ... This disc will be eagerly added to existing Fireworks collections, and may be savoured by new converts as the musical equivalent of a vintage madeira' (Classic CD) 'Though this is a disc absolutely not to be missed by all lovers of the Edwardian organ and its music, I would say that it rises above this narrow musical bracket and is of great musical worth full stop!'
