HASH(0x8ebac750) out of 5 stars Whoever chose the selections and the performances did the choosing with love and knowledge 10 Aug. 2014
By Allen R. Levy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have had this CD for many years. It is my go-to Gilbert & Sullivan collection. Whoever chose the selections and the performances did the choosing with love and knowledge. The CD is from a British company called Prism Leisure, which is, unfortunately, defunct. I have CDs of some of the other operas, and they are fine, but this is by far the best single collection I have encountered. If this thing is still around (used, probably), jump on it. You won't be disappointed---and you will be charmed and, dare I say it, uplifted. Rapture!---and not modified rapture, either.

HASH(0x8e737144) out of 5 stars The best of G&S 23 Sept. 2013
By Donald L. Kass - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This appears to be a reissue of two Israeli CDs which I picked up for about $5 each about twenty years ago. All the performances are from the classic Sargent 78 sets of the late 1920s --so this is as close to the original savoyard
tradition as you are likely to get in listenable sound. The complete recordings would be preferable but for the
non-G&S fanatic, this is really the best of them. Here are the real classic performers: Bertha Lewis, Ella Halman,
George Baker, Martyn Green, Leslie Rands, Darryl Fancourt. I listen to these CDs over and over again. Truly priceless
HASH(0x8e67b9e4) out of 5 stars Classic Old-Style Collection of a Generous 56 of Gilbert & Sullivan Faves From 7 Operettas 15 Oct. 2014
By Lady LiberTEA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Quality heavy materials used to reproduce these old recordings in the maximally stylized music & phrasing of the original D'oyly Carte Opera Company, but I find Gilbert & Sullivan's oh so cleverly amusing & even moving lyrics easier to discern in the American-made "Pirates of Penzance" with celebrities Linda Ronstadt & Kevin Kline, and that I prefer more modernly sophisticated sound & recording technology.

But I'm happy to have been able to purchase this rare collection at a reasonable price & enjoy challenging my memory & verbal dexterity singing along w/ soloists & heartily resounding dual-gender choruses of this generous 2-CD collection of 56 songs classically performed from seven of G&S' best-loved opera/operettas Mikado, Pinafore, Penzance, Gondoliers, Iolanthe, Trial By Jury, & Yeoman :)

HASH(0x8e9c1a8c) out of 5 stars Good bargain. 25 Aug. 2004
By Kimba W. Lion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The performances are good--this is the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company, after all--and you get 2 full CDs, with 2 selections from "Trial by Jury", 5 from "HMS Pinafore", 9 from "The Pirates of Penzance", 9 from "Iolanthe", 12 from "The Mikado", 6 from "The Yeomen of the Guard", and 13 from "The Gondoliers". The booklet is a bit skimpy, and only lists recording dates for the first CD (1929-1949). But the sound is good, and the music is great, and at this price it's a great "greatest hits" collection.

HASH(0x8e77b024) out of 5 stars Fun Music!! 29 Jan. 2011
By Gina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This Gilbert & Sullivan cd is great! Their music is fun, catchy & good motivating music. I can put the cd in & get lots of housework done while listening. It's full of energy & easy, if you listen, to sing along. I am glad I found this cd. I am not disappointed in it & carry it in my car as well as have it on my Zune.

Great buy, I recommend to anyone who wants an energized cd.
