Reviews

‘…nothing could be both more respectful and more uplifting than Margaret Phillips’s playing of some of the most sublime music in existence.’ Organists’ Review February 2022

‘Phillips never loses sight of the fact that she is playing eloquent music that unfolds in expansive phrases. She constantly demonstrates her mastery of agogic nuance, which I consider the organist’s most valuable resource for the shaping of musical phrases. These are consistently sensitive and eminently musical performances, not musicological exercises… I do not pretend to have heard every organ recording of Art of Fugue, but I have yet to hear one that surpasses this.’ American Record Guide February 2022

‘Margaret Phillips’s performance is distinguished by extreme clarity, grace and precision, an intellectual understanding and mastery which are wholly admirable and utterly convincing.’ The Organ February–April 2022
