Editorial Reviews

Like most of Bach's greatest keyboard works, the Little Organ Book was designed for teaching through example. It contains 45 tiny chorale preludes, all designed according to the same principle. There are three genuine parts. One line has the hymn tune, which serves as the basis of the prelude, and the other two execute independent figures, which provide a musical analogue to the meaning of the most important lines of the text. Most of them aren't much more than a minute long, but each is simply exquisite. Christopher Herrick plays the complete set with consummate taste, and excellently chosen registrations that keep the polyphony crystal clear. --David Hurwitz
