According to Hans Roelofs, Matthew Best is one of the better performers of Bruckner's religious music. His CDs with performances of Bruckner's Requiem, Mass No. 2 (1882 version), and Psalms 114 and 112 are as yet possibly the nec plus ultra. His CD devoted to Bruckner's motets and his performances of Masses Nos. 1 and 3, Aequali, Libera me (II), Te Deum and Psalm 150 are also among the better ones.
