This October 1957 recording of the opera, reissued on Decca CD for the first time, marked the start of a new, and for many collectors ‘golden’, era for the D’Oyly Carte company on record. Made only 7 years after a very fine post-war LP set, this remake benefits from remarkably present stereo sound and boasts a strong array of soloists. ‘The new Decca set will hold its own for its authenticity among real lovers of Gilbert and Sullivan’ Gramophone
