Pretty good, considering that the organ is very definitely NOT Baroque.

Excellent registration and clarity in this very reverberant building. Very sensible tempo.

Gets a little confused on the right hand at times but still pretty good.

Douglas Major is obviously a fine artist. There does appear to be, though, within his artistry, an apparent preference for extreme low pitch pedal voicing (32+). This tends to muddy out all the beauty of the upper voicing.
