About

Arthur Sullivan had a life and career before and beyond the Savoy operas. In the now completely unknown cantata On Shore and Sea of 1871 (here in its world premiere recording) and the earlier 'Masque' Kenilworth, with which the 22–year-old composer fulfilled his first commission for a major choral festival (at Birmingham), we have two scores all lovers of Sullivan – as well as those exploring the still forgotten tuneful delights of Victorian cantatas – will revel in.

Already the master of the charming aria, catchy number and delightful chorus, we can share with Sullivan’s first audiences the pleasure of melodic discoveries in works commissioned from the coming man of mid-Victorian music.

Under the authoritative direction of Richard Bonynge, the music of Sullivan is vibrantly restored to us in these enthusiastic performances.

Recorded: Urmston Grammar, Manchester, November 2013.
