Amazon Customer Review
One of the very best G&S recordings ever made, in my view. The YEOMEN is essentially a record of WNO's stage version of the opera, which finally brought Sullivan's music to the stage of the Royal Opera House. Felicity Palmer's rendition of "When Our Gallant Norman Foes" is an object lesson in how to sing this material. The late, lamented Donald Adams brings authority and humour to Sergeant Meryll, and in Richard Suart there is a credible Jack Point. The rest of the WNO cast is similarly excellent, and Charles Mackerras gets top performances out of the WNO orchestra and chorus. 
TRIAL BY JURY is very good indeed, although Mackerras rushes through the two tenor songs for some reason, and Donald Adams is credited as playing the Usher, but it doesn't sound like him - though whoever it is gives a good performance.
All in all, well worth paying the extra money - certainly YEOMEN is as good as it gets

Amazon.co.uk Customer Review
A good dose of nostalgia never hurts. If you are bitten by the G & S bug you eventually succumb to wondering about the likes of Henry Lytton, Darrell Fancourt and Bertha Lewis, and the atmosphere of the early days, this collection gives answers in the most appealing manner. The recording engineers have done a spectacular job in resuscitating performances of nearly eighty years standing.
Understandably the definition of the choral singing is low but the recording techniques of the time and the skill of the modern sound engineers give a clear rendition of the soloists.
It is delightful to hear the precise enunciation delivered in "the Queen's English" and clipped manner of delivery.
In the Mikado, Bertha Lewis shines out in the great tradition of British contraltos underscored by a wry and experienced Henry Lytton.
The only disappointment in all four CDs is the omission of the Usher's introductory song "Now, Jurymen hear my advice" from Trial by Jury. Overall a very reasonable investment for G & S lovers.
