After his famous partnership with G.S. Gilbert, Sir Arthur Sullivan carried on writing operas with various other librettists. None of the resulting operas was recorded, either wholly or partly. JAY Records take great pride in announcing the World Premier release of Arias, Duets and Ensembles from the canon including The Martyr of Antioch, Ivanhoe, Haddon Hall, The Chieftan, The Beauty Stone, The Rose of Persia and The Emerald Isle.

The music for this recording is rightly performed by English opera Stars who are renowned and acclaimed for their performances of Gilbert and Sullivan. They are Valerie Masterson, Frances McCafferty, Gillian Knight, Arthur Davis, Richard Suart and Gareth Jones.

The National Symphony Orchestra is conducted David Steadman.

Recorded in Digital Dolby Surround Sound at Abbey Road Studios in London.
