 In the course of an afternoon's musical chit-chat, with P.F. obbligato I have heard him [Herbeck] play through madrigals by Battishill and Wilbye, songs by Purcell and Ame, gigues and passepieds by Rameau and Couperin, fugues by Albrechtsberger, Scarlatti and the younger Bachs, selections from Verdi's least-known operas. Credos and Glorias by provincial Austrian, German, and Italian organists who might have been nameless for all the musical world knows of their productions —all these, besides bits and scraps of many others, as it were en passant, merely to illustrate some topic or suggestion of the causerie going on round his huge sonorous Boesendorfer.
