Amazon.co.uk Customer Comment
The first electronic recordings of "Iolanthe" and "The Gondoliers" made in the late 1920's/early 1930's. The comic operas would originally have been issued in albums of about twenty-four sides, each. 
Sound is amazingly good mono, considering the great age of the performances, and not so very different from some first-generation LPs. The voices of the soloists are very well captured. The choruses sound fine, although a little distant and slightly compressed. If the orchestra seems confined by digital era standards, the sound is good and full of detail. 
These recordings were made under the personal supervision of Rupert D'Oyly Carte, whose father, Richard, had founded the opera company and been a partner with Gilbert (stormily) and Sullivan (happily). His step-mother, Helen, had succeeded to control of the company, and his daughter, Bridget, would continue to run it with a whim of iron well past the middle of the 20th Century. Whatever the eccentricities of the D'Oyly Cartes, this early series of recordings must be regarded as definitive in setting out the G&S performance tradition. 
This set presents two G&S comic opera masterpieces at a rock-bottom price. It offers surprisingly good sound and first-class performances, my mere nitpicking to the contrary. It is a must-have for a serious lover of G&S. For those of you, delicate souls that you are, who must have DDD sound or suffer the vapours, walk away, this is not for you. For those who give more weight to artistic quality than to mere mechanical reproduction of sound, this set is worth five stars, no question about it.
