As you read this, somewhere in the English-speaking world a production of a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta is being rehearsed or presented. It may be taking place in a public school; a university; an amateur musical theater group; a summer-stock ensemble; or a professional light-opera company. The musical accompaniment may consist of a piano or two - with perhaps a few other instruments - or a full orchestra.
Incredibly, despite the seemingly endless popularity of these works, there has never been an edition which permitted the guitar-playing masses to enjoy these Victorian gems. Until now. Here, for the first time, are 52 G&S favorites (or, if you will, favour
ites), drawn from five of their most popular operettas: H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, Patience, Iolanthe,
and The Mikado
, arranged with guitar chords--in guitar-friendly keys! The very model of a modern music manuscript! All selections include melody, lyrics and guitar chords.
