Reviews

“Gary Cole at Regent, who has always been a master in the refined art of capturing an organ on disc, ambience and all, seems to have excelled himself…. these are organ recordings par excellence…..Listening to this disc is a real aural delight. Phillips is certainly an uncannily vivid and perceptive interpreter……Some of the finest performances of Bach Chorale preludes on disc.” International Record Review, reviewing REGCD232 & REGCD254

‘…the excellent quality of the sound recording; Margaret Phillips’ impeccable playing; and last, but not least, the beautiful organ used’ Goldberg *****
