Many of ’Gilbert and Sullivans’catchy tunes sound well on the organ. This particular piece was arranged for a friends funeral - he wanted something happy! It can be played on any 2 manual organ (pipe or electronic) with a full pedal-board. It also makes an especially good wedding interlude piece - e.g. whilst the register is being signed.
