Notes & Reviews:

29 May 2011 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of Sir William Schwenck Gilbert - the librettist of one of the most famous musical partnerships in music history. Decca's earliest recordings of G&S with the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company were made between 1949 and 1955 in MONO. In 1957, the first in a new series of stereo recordings was initiated with The Pirates of Penzance, culminating in 1966 with The Sorcerer; between 1967 and 1979 a second series of recordings was made. The performances in this set are drawn largely from the first series of stereo recordings.
