Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is for me, my best buy ever.

It is not the usual spectacular playing of Mr Herrick (never in any doubt), nor the choice of a fine instrument on which to play. It is quite simply the music that falls out of the speakers, from the first three or four notes I was captivated. I will always know where this disc is, it will never get lost in the shelves with all the other discs. It will be next to the player ready for action.

The Vivaldi is enough of a justification for this disc on its own. Just spellbinding, I sat there transfixed on first playing.

HASH(0x8c1e4fc0) out of 5 stars This CD is magnificent 9 Sept. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Herrick's musician is without doubt superb. He plays with mastery and complete control whilst imbueing the music with the momentum and liveliness that these pieces demand. The pieces themselves are anything but simple to play, and require a consumate player to deliver them with the skill and care that the artist provides. 'The Italian Connection' is a very worthy addition to any organ music lover's collection - the concerti are vibrant, and the instrument Herrick uses has some interesting sounds indeed: the opening bars of the C major Concerto with its iterated C in the manuals and pedals is a stunning effect; so too is the developmental section of the A minor Concerto, amongst others. The CD shows off many things - the organ, the organist, the music, the Italian style, Bach's expertise in transcription, to name but a few. I suspect however that for whatever reason you buy organ music, you will not be disappointed. Five stars indeed.
