    Excellent historic recording

    This is an excellent "Patience" - I love the Savoy operas and am always on the lookout for Martyn Green recordings. The cast is made up of some of the good old D'Oyly Carte legendaries - Darrell Fancourt, Peter Pratt and Leonard Osborn amongst them. Martyn Green is the perfect Bunthorne - his solos are delightful and entertaining. As pertaining to Osborn, however, be forewarned: if you're looking forward to his singing, he performs only the Duke's first solo, "Your Maiden Hearts Ah Do Not Steel," from Act 1 finale (apparently he got ill during recording sessions) so that is the only sampling we get of Osborn as the Duke - though of course it is an ideal sampling as the song is as lovely and lilting as anything Sullivan ever wrote. Neville Griffiths sings the rest of the Duke's solos and does a fine job with them. Perhaps it's only the recording quality (it was recorded in 1951), but I was a bit disappointed in Ella Halman's performance as Lady Jane, voice-wise. Oftentimes the Gilbertian contralto roles seem to be tossed aside, as if people think since they're humorous roles, the singer needn't have a nice voice. I tend to disagree - for me, Anne Collins is the ideal Lady Jane (her performance was the only thing that made the Brent Walker video bearable), and no one can reproach HER voice. Also, Darrell Fancourt seemed to me to be a bit strained in his first song - but then the song itself is one of Gilbert's most infamous and he manages to make it through without stumbles. Margaret Mitchell is a wonderful Patience, introducing herself with a "I Cannot Tell What This Love May Be" that is indeed blithe and gay. Overall, the CD is quite enjoyable.
