American Record Guide “Bates, I am happy to say, is very convincing in all the works, and the organ is, if not strikingly varied in timbre, a fine instrument for Brahms. The recording is very clear and warm … Ruth Escher’s chorale are done nicely enough … On the basis of the instrument alone this recording is worth having. Rival versions … don’t have the warmth for the late works, … It seems ironic that you’d have to go to Oregon to hear idiomatic Brahms, but I suppose stranger things have happened.” – Althouse
