This contains 31 G&S numbers, most of them abridged and performed as a series of medleys. J. Donald Smith reports that it’s “a somewhat strange selection, but remember that this was done for young children. It does seem to work.”
Donald has only one complaint that the singers make no attempt at English accents (“vase” in “If you want to know who we are” rhymed with “base”). Nevertheless, as an introduction to G&S, it ain’t bad. If only G&S albums for children were still on the market!
Orchestra and chorus under direction of Mitch Miller.
