Smoke Notes

"A very well sung recording indeed. Monica Sinclair is probably the very best Buttercup on disc and John Cameron makes a very special Captain. For once the Glynebourne crowd really sound like they are enjoying making the recording. Orchestra and chorus are nicely balanced."

(Mel Moratti on H.M.S. Pinafore)

"Exceptionally good singing especially in the Act One finale. George Baker is a strong Lord Chancellor. Monica Sinclair is an excellent Fairy Queen - she certainly sends chills up the spine with her 'Take down our sentence as we speak it'."

(Mel Moratti on Iolanthe)

"Loaded with atmosphere and possibly the best sung recording of Ruddigore. Every word is clearly heard. Owen Brannigan is a terrifying Sir Despard and Elsie Morison is delightful as Rose."

(Mel Moratti on Ruddigore)
