ANN DRUMMOND-GRANT

Although later a noted principal contralto and the wife of D’Oyly Carte conductor Isidore Godfrey, Ann Drummond-Grant began as a soprano in opera and musical comedy. She first sang with the D’Oyly Carte from 1933 until 1938, her rôles including the Plaintiff in Trial By Jury, Celia and Phyllis in Iolanthe, Fiametta in Gondoliers, Josephine in HMS Pinafore, Lady Saphir in Patience, and Phoebe Meryll. Her later career was devoted largely to annual summer seasons and non-G&S operetta, but in 1950 she returned to D’Oyly Carte where, a year later, she took over the repertoire vacated by Ella Halman. She died in 1959.
