Amazon Customer Review
These recordings were made in 1907 by the Gramophone & Typewriter (G&T) Company. They employed so-called studio artists, none of whom were D'Oyly Carte cast members. Even so, the current transcriptions are bright and clear. All of the performers, notably Ada Florence, Walter Sinclair, Harry Dearth, and Ernest Pike presented the Gilbertian traditions of performance. The voices may not always be what listeners to later recordings may be used to, but they are highly professional. Symposium Records and the Sir Arthur Sullivan Society deserve high praise for this desirable historical issue of two of the earliest more or less complete G&S performances. Also very pleasing is the almost total absence of surface noise, so prevalent, at least in many listeners' minds, on vintage 78s.

Amazon.co.uk Review
This delightful two-CD set is based on a 1995 D'Oyly Carte production, which was revived to great acclaim in London's Royal Festival Hall in August 1999. The recording was made just a month later, and as a result has a dramatic tautness about it and musical flexibility which keeps the comedy absolutely fresh. The tempi feel just right--brisk for the set pieces and more relaxed for the sentimental numbers, though without a hint of mawkishness. The casting is excellent, for the voices are all of the light lyric or character kind perfect for the genre, and no one overacts while singing. Yvonne Barclay is particularly impressive, and brings real vulnerability to her rendition of Josephine's Act 2 "God of love, God of reason" aria. The only problem with the disc is the inclusion of the dialogue scenes, which, as so often happens when removed from the oxygen of live theatre, simply gasp and die. As if in compensation however, the set includes the diverting duet "Reflect, my child", which was cut from the first production and has since been reconstructed from recently discovered band parts.

Amazon.co.uk Customer Comment
The first electronic recordings of "HMS Pinafore" and "The Pirates of Penzance" 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.
