W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan produced several of the most popular operas and operettas of all time. Sullivan's music was always memorable and tuneful while Gilbert's libretti had both wit and pathos. This book contains several Gilbert and Sullivan selections for the Tenor singer, including 'Take pair Of Sparkling Eyes' and 'A Wand'ring Minstrel I', and comes with a CD of the Piano accompaniments from the book for those occasions when a pianist cannot be found for practice!
This is a great set of songs from the Gilbert and Sullivan operettas and it's great to have them all in one collection!
One is written for a baritone (Pale moon to thee I sing) but has added a top A in a 'cadenza' at the end to justify putting it in for Tenors.
The CD of accompaniments is a major bonus and gets you singing within minutes of opening the book! Anonymous
