'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.'

During Herrick's ten years at Westminster Abbey he played for many Royal and State occasions. Since 1984, he has enjoyed a highly successful career as an international concert organist. He has also dedicated numerous organs in North America, including the Létourneau organ at Edmonton's Winspear Centre Concert Hall.
