GRAMOPHONE SPECIALIST’S GUIDE TO… British royalty in music #5

Sullivan’s ballet Victoria and Merrie England was written to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897. Presented at the Alhambra Theatre, it ran for a creditable six months. Sullivan, who wrote most of the score on the French Riviera between gambling sprees, does not attempt a portrait of the monarch; instead he opts for a series of tableaux representing various events in the nation’s history, culminating in Victoria’s 1837 coronation. © 2015 Gramophone



Gramophone, June 1996

Sullivan skilfully weaves in various patriotic British melodies as well as traditional dances such as a morris dance and a sailors' hornpipe.



Fanfare

"Conductor Andrew Penny...leads both the orchestral and choral ensembles with zest, good tempo choices, and firm baton."



American Record Guide

"It is a pleasure to welcome both of these splendidly played and recorded discs to the catalog..."
