Arthur Lawrence reviews in The American Organist: "The playing has the same fine traits that Dr. Ritchie's other Bach recordings exhibit: rhythmic intensity, architectural line, elegant phrasing and articulation, and appropriate registrations ranging from bold and forceful to restrained and quiet. Every piece in this set is a masterwork . . . The organ is a sonic tour de force, with complete principal choruses (based on 16' or 8' for the manuals and 32' for the pedal, beautiful flutes, and colorful reeds. . . Excellent notes by George stauffer, the rogan specification, and the registrations employed."

George Ritchie plays the John Brombaugh magnum opus at Southern Adventist University, Collegedale, Tennessee.

The Anton Heiller Memorial Organ
John Brombaugh and the workers in his Eugene, Oregon workshop logged some 48,000 hours handcrafting this organ beginning in 1981. It was dedicated in 1986 in the Collegedale Church of Seventh-day Adventists on the campus of Southern Adventist University, Collegedale, Tennessee. The instrument is comprised of 108 ranks in 70 stops, 4,861 pipes. Two large, wedge-shaped bellows are filled by an electric blower, the only electrical device used in the organ.
