Composed by: Sullivan: On Shore and Sea, Kenilworth
Arthur Sullivan’s cantata On Shore and Sea and the earlier masque Kenilworth are two scores all lovers of Gilbert & Sullivan will revel in. Already the master of the charming aria, catchy number and delightful chorus, we can share with Sullivan’s first audiences the rare pleasure of early works by the future superstar of Victorian music. Under the authoritative direction of Richard Bonynge, Sullivan’s music is vibrantly restored.
