His works – in keeping with the late sixteenth-century technical advances in organ building – seem to us surprisingly modern in their frequent use of contrasting sound and, above all, in their bold rhythms and harmony. This forward-looking musician may be regarded as a seminal figure in the development of the Aragonese school of organ music: he was the first composer to propagate, if not invent, a new style of writing, the tiento de medio registro, shortly before the arrival of the brilliant Correa de Arauxo.

This first recording on CD of Heredia's complete organ works gives us an opportunity to discover and gain a better understanding of organ music in Spain at the beginning of the Baroque period.
