Image of the CD cover

'Qualities of clarity and charm, commitment and conviction… are in evidence in each track. All receive an equal integrity of approach and perceptive musical insight; and equal pliancy and subtlety of nuance. Margaret’s ability to make music at the keyboard is irresistibly and invariably present…a must-buy for those who value sheer musicianship.’
Organists’ Review, Feb 2005

'Margaret Phillips's playing is a delight - clean and articulate, with a good sense of touch and some impressively nimble fingerwork'
Early Music Review, October 2002

'Fine and stylistically aware performances'
BIOS Journal, Vol. 25, 2000
