One of Britain's outstanding concert organists and teachers, Margaret Phillips studied with Ralph Downes and Marie-Claire Alain. After her début at the Royal Festival Hall, she soon gained an international reputation as a soloist, playing at concert halls and cathedrals throughout Europe and in the U.S.A., Canada, Australia and Mexico. Alongside her busy concert career, she was a member of Council of the Royal College of Organists for 20 years, and President of the Incorporated Association of Organists from 1997–99. From 1996–2021 she was Professor of Organ at the Royal College of Music in London, and in 2022 she was awarded the Medal of the Royal College of Organists, the highest honour given by the College.

In 1994, Margaret Phillips and her late husband founded the English Organ School and Museum in former chapel premises in Milborne Port, Somerset, where there is a collection of organs by English builders from the eighteenth century to the present day. EOS aims to provide facilities for learning and playing the organ, to promote its understanding and appreciation as a musical instrument, and to preserve a modest part of Britain's organ heritage.

Highlights of recent years include an evening recital at the Royal Festival Hall in their international series Pull Out All the Stops which was also broadcast on BBC Radio 3, and two marathon series, each of 18 concerts, of the complete works of Bach, in Milborne Port and in London at St George’s, Hanover Square.

Margaret’s numerous CDs, which include the complete organ works of Bach, Mendelssohn, Saint-Saëns and Stanley, have been highly praised, the first two volumes of the Bach series being hailed as ‘some of the finest performances of Bach chorale preludes on disc’. Her most recent releases are Capriccio, showcasing contemporary music for organ, Multum in Parvo, which features 12 of the instruments at the English Organ School, and Bach’s Art of Fugue.
