Christopher Herrick

'He is a virtuoso, no question. He was at the peak of his considerable form, combining precision with panache, interpretive freedom with sheer joy in virtuosity. The playing was, in a word, triumphal.'

The New York Times critic wrote this review after hearing Christopher Herrick play the complete organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach during the 1998 Lincoln Center Festival. The invitation to undertake this challenging project - to give fourteen concerts on fourteen consecutive days - came directly because of the success of his complete Bach organ works recordings for Britain's finest classical recording company, Hyperion Records. The Gramophone review said that 'Christopher Herrick and the Hyperion team deserve the warmest praise for a Bach cycle that has provided such scintillating and compelling listening.'

Hyperion has issued over forty solo CDs since his 1983 debut album from Westminster Abbey. This album entitled 'Organ Fireworks' led to a whole series of similar discs recorded on great organs all over the world which continue to fascinate organ lovers and critics with their 'varied mix of familiar and unfamiliar repertoire'. The Gramophone review continues: 'The strengths of this hugely enjoyable and downright spectacular series lie in consistently first-rate recordings of some of the world's most aurally stunning instruments, and Herrick's playing, which can only be described as unfailingly brilliant.'

During Herrick's ten years at Westminster Abbey he played for many Royal and State occasions, including the state funeral of Lord Mountbatten, the funeral service for Herbert Howells, and for both the 80th birthday concert and the funeral service for Sir William Walton.

Since 1984, he has enjoyed a highly successful career as an international concert organist. Highlights include his own 'Organ Prom' in the BBC Henry Wood Promenade Concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, giving the opening concert at the Stockholm International Organ Festival and three inaugural concerts on the Rieger organ in Christchurch Town Hall, New Zealand, as well as dedicating numerous organs in North American, including the L├ętourneau organ at Edmonton's Winspear Centre Concert Hall.

The year 2012 is another busy one for Christopher, with the recording of the last of the five CDs comprising the complete organ works of Buxtehude, as well as fulfilling solo organ engagements in the UK and in Denmark, Canada, Germany, Luxembourg, Sweden and the USA. As a choral conductor he will be directing a full season of concerts with Twickenham Choral Society, his 38th season with this brilliant 120 member choir.
