Peter Niedmann's music is widely performed throughout the United States and has garnered unanimous critical acclaim. His choral music has been sung at The White House and the Papal Mass in St. Louis for Pope John Paul II. "In the Ending of the Year," for chorus and orchestra, was singled out by American Record Guide magazine as the best new piece on Harvard University Choir’s CD, Carols from the Yard. The American Organist magazine has praised his music as “thoughtful, well-wrought, and appealing.”

His hymns and service music are included in two hymnals—Wonder, Love, and Praise (Episcopal) and The New Century Hymnal (United Church of Christ).
