'Her utterly clean, characterful playing and perfectly judged registrations…Phillips is an inspiration.'
Choir & Organ, November/December 2008

'Phillips, Bach and the Trinity Metzler are a winning combination.'
Record Review, BBC Radio 3, 8 November 2008

'…niftily played with beautifully sprung rhythm…rip-roaring performances of the stupendous Toccata & Fugue in F, and the early Prelude & Fugue in C minor.'
Early Music Today, November 2008

'Listen to the truly scintillating account of the F major Toccata; eight-and-a-half minutes' worth of unrestrained happiness. The Fantasie of BWV561 gushes like a decorative fountain sparkling in the sunlight…while the C minor Prelude and Fugue, BWV549 gets about the most stirring and robust performance I've yet heard on disc.'
International Record Review, October 2008

'In Margaret Phillips's skilful hands (and feet) each contrapuntal line sings melodiously. Phrasing sounds utterly natural: neither mannered nor forced. Tempi are finely judged and never excessive in either direction. These are performances to which it is a pleasure to listen.'
Church Music Quarterly, September 2008
