Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to one and all. I hope everyone is enjoying a happy and safe holiday. I hope Santa was good to all you good boys and girls out there. Among the battery operated toys and wrapping paper I received a few great musical prezzies:
  • Vocal score of a concert version of Edward German's Merrie England
  • Vocal score of a concert version of Montague Phillips operetta The Rebel Maid (1921)
  • A bound library vocal score of The Gondoliers to replace my very used Schirmer copy
  • The 2-CD set of the Bognor Regis (UK) Music Society's June 2008 concert of Sidney Jones' 1898 operetta/musical comedy A Greek Slave (wow!)
  • A DVD of the BBC docu-drama on the life of the Edwardian music hall queen Marie Lloyd
