"Although Leif Kayser did not have a tenure as an organist and the liturgical play, therefore, was not naturally a part of his job, the composer possessed a fantastic sympathetic insight to the songs of the congregation and choral works." Henrik Strøm writes. 

He elaborates "The preludes are well thought of and very well functioning," he describes the melodies in the psalm settings as original and writes, "Kayser had an amazing intuition for the harmonic aspect".

Above all, the issues of Kayser's organ works Forspil og salmesatser, Bind I–III (1968-1996) is well received by Organist.org who rates the works with the highest-rated character!
