The Savoy Theatre, London, hosted this Comic Opera in 1902. It ran for 4 months. The opera became quite popular and was often performed by amateur groups in the decades following its premiere. In Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation year, over five hundred amateur societies staged the piece. Despite its lively and accessible music and libretto, it has fallen into relative obscurity in recent years. Edward German collaborated with Sir Arthur Sullivan in the previous year in composing the opera The Emerald Isle.

This arrangement is for Woodwind Quintet.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
