Notes & Reviews:

Spirited performances are the order of the day in this recording of two little-known operettas by Sullivan. 'The Contrabandista' tells the story of the hapless traveler who is co-opted into becoming leader of a notorious band of thieves. 'The Foresters' sets verses by Lord Tennyson on the theme of Robin Hood. Warmly received in the States, the work met with a distincly hostile reception in London. Sullivan's score, by contrast, was universally recognized as being the saving grace.

'The choir and orchestra with Ronald Corp seem to be having a good time, enthusiastic in their task. The clear recording is helped by the fine acoustics of the Henry Wood Hall. This is a worthwhile addition to the Sullivan discography' (International Record Review)
