“Enjoy playing the songs!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This is such a lovely volume of classic arias from great G&S operettas. Pitched at a really accessible level with sensible keys, straightforward rhythms and a good note range, these songs can be enjoyed without stress. The accompaniments are of a similar standard too, making it ideal for old-fashioned parlour music-making with friends. For all those that love a good tune this book is for you!

From the Publisher

Sir James Galway first came upon Gilbert and Sullivan's wonderful operettas while playing with Sadler's Wells Opera orchestra, which later became English National Opera. His fondness for good tunes, with which the G&S operettas abound, led to this collection, created with longtime collaborator and arranger David Overton. The Gilbert and Sullivan arrangements are divided into separate albums, as some of the songs are best suited to solo flute and piano, some for two flutes and piano, and some lend themselves to a flute choir. This volume for flute and piano contains: A wand'ring minstrel I (Mikado), On a tree by a river (Mikado), Poor wand'ring one (Pirates), Take a pair of sparkling eyes (Gondoliers), The flowers that bloom in the spring (Mikado), The sun whose rays (Mikado), When a merry maiden marries (Gondoliers)
