Grove's Dictionary has much praise for the Fourth symphony:

"In 1940 Rosenberg produced one of his greatest works, the Symphony no. 4 ‘Johannes uppenbarelse’ (‘The Revelation of St. John’), a vast composition in eight movements for baritone, chorus and orchestra. The piece is dramatically conceived, with sharp contrasts both in mood and style between the choral-orchestral movements (at times recalling Mahler) and the baritone recitatives, whose tonality is more advanced. The linking a cappella chorales draw on Palestrina and Schütz, but they also continue, from Stenhammar, the development of the Swedish choral tradition.

"The Fifth Symphony [is] a work in a pure classical spirit, forming a pastoral equivalent and complement to the Revelation symphony."
