A recent release on the MPR label is a recording of Part Songs by Sir
Arthur Sullivan. Although most of these have been previously recorded
on vinyl and are available to hear on YouTube, the sound quality isn't great,
so this new recording performed by the Kantos Chamber Choir is surely
a must-have CD for anyone keen to explore Sullivan's more serious
musical output. There are 21 Part Songs included, some sacred, some
secular, but all are sung a capella, although the printed scores I've seen
also include a piano accompaniment.
