This is sort of a work in progress thing, but I came across one of these LPs in my internet search travels tonight and didn't see it in @Mark Anderson's quad discography. It looks like I'm not the first person to notice them (@Soundfield and @fizzywiggs41 discuss them in the thread I linked to) but I thought it might be useful to consolidate the titles I've found in one place, just in case there are any further ones to be discovered.

The common denominator between these and other classical quad mixes of the era appear to be Robert Auger (a well-known British engineer, who's credited on the Vogel mix below) and Hellmuth Kolbe, a German engineer who did classical quad mixes for a bunch of Swiss and German labels.

Always fascinated by the many approaches possible for multichannel recording of pipe organs.
I live in the city with the world's largest pipe organ, and we had a record label that recorded TV organ player in quad. The organ is in a department store, and the main listening has front and rear pipes, and the listening area is very reverberant and over multiple floors which have balconies. I'm not aware of any recordings made here that are not simply stereo. Wanamaker Organ - Wikipedia

Yes! We wandered in on a recent visit to your city and were pleased (at least, I was) to be treated to a selection of Wagner transcriptions.

Where did you listen from? The ground floor is too far away from the pipes and slappy for my taste. The 2nd or 3rd floors' balconies open onto the main room, and I prefer them. I'm sure the organist would have been happy to have a journo say hi if you peeked into the loft.

We began on the ground floor but later migrated up to the 3rd floor balcony. Big difference.
