Gilbert and Sullivan

Sara Mohr-Pietsch is joined by members of English National Opera to explore the world of Gilbert and Sullivan. Plus the music of Flemish Renaissance composer and priest Jean Guyot.

Sara Mohr-Pietsch delves into the world of Gilbert and Sullivan. Joined by English National Opera chorus member Debbie Davison who is currently performing in Trial by Jury, and Tim Henty who'll be conducting ENO's production of Iolanthe in 2018, Sara explores with her guests why Sullivan's music is still so popular, and what are some of the pitfalls for both amateur and professional choirs in performing Sullivan's music. Also ahead of Cinquecento's first UK tour in July, baritone Tim Scott Whiteley introduces the music of the Flemish renaissance composer and priest Jean Guyot, and discusses the groups recently released recording of Guyot's Te Deum.
