Image of the CD cover

'…it is remarkable how brilliant and impressive Margaret Phillips's performance [of the Lübeck] sounds on a two-manual-and-pedal tracker of a mere nineteen ranks.
Phillips's primary goal is to teach and inform the public about the organ, and in this regard the compact disc has a great deal to teach us all.'
The Diapason, March 2020

'A remarkable disc and much enjoyed.'
The Organ Club Journal, 2017/3

'…Margaret plays a wide selection of appropriate music, all of it stylishly and compellingly…her exemplary notes [give] full details of every instrument…Margaret Phillips's splendid performances will convey the immense variety of the collection to many who have not yet visited the English Organ School and Museum.'
BIOS Reporter, October 2017

'The English Organ School and Museum has built up a valuable collection of organs, harmoniums and harpsichords, and this CD is a wonderful demonstration of the instruments, all played with stylistic authenticity and conviction by Margaret Phillips…Highly recommended.'
Choir & Organ, September/October 2017 Star Review *****

'The booklet for this fascinating CD lists all the instruments in use. The playing is very exposed but first rate, the pieces being matched to the period of the instrument in use. Most definitely Multum in parvo…'
