This recording, made in February 1977, and receiving its first release on CD, was one of the last the original D’Oyly Carte Opera Company made before it was disbanded in 1982. ‘the appealing gondoliers of Meston Reid and Michael Rayner, John Reed’s typically reliable Duke and Kenneth Sandford’s pillar of strength Don Alhambra’ Gramophone
