Gilbert & Sullivan: Tit Willow, Brightly Dawns Our Wedding Day, Ah Leave Me Not, & Here’s A Howdy Do

These four pieces are from the King’s Singers songbook.  It’s unlikely that there’s anything online to help with learning the individual parts to them. Downloads of the King’s Singers’ own recordings are available on Amazon at £0.99 per track: https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-music&field-keywords=%22here%27s+a+howdy+do%22, or you could purchase the album (CD £21.82 or MP3 more modestly priced at £7.99), which includes 15 G&S songs (not just the ones in the songbook).


Gilbert & Sullivan: When a wooer goes a-wooing

Reasonable recordings of this seem to be few and far between on Youtube. One of better ones features Tommy Steele as Jack Point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obUD-7YyYo0.  The song starts at about 1m 40sec.


Handel: Acis & Galatea extracts

Performances by Dunedin Consort & Players:

Mourn all ye muses: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3cQCxH7LQM

Galatea, dry thy tears: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4WZ985FtH8

Must I my Acis still bemoan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVWnMBq3UiI


To learn individual parts in Acis & Galatea:

NOTE: that, for the final movement, you need the shorter (abbreviated) version.
