MONTAGUE PHILLIPS  

(1885 - 1969)

Montague Phillips was born in London and studied at the Royal Academy of Music. Initially a church musician, he branched out into orchestral writing and even conquered the West End stage with his operetta, The Rebel Maid, which starred his wife, Clara Butterworth. Many of his pieces later found their way onto library discs, but since not all were written for that purpose, cuts had to be made to accommodate the 78 rpm disc. His works all displaying his talent for melody, and expert craftsmanship that places him as quite the equal of his friends, Eric Coates and Haydn Wood, albeit with a smaller body of work.
