Foreword:
      I first came across the wonderful Gilbert & Sullivan operettas when, many years ago, I played in the Sadler's Wells Opera orchestra, which later became the English National Opera.
      I often equate playing the flute to singing, and I love good tunes, with which the G&S operettas abound. So, it's not surprising that in conjunction with my arranger David Overton, I should choose to compile an album of some of the songs.
      I have not included songs which, like the 'patter songs' are particularly dependent on the wit of Gilbert's words, but rather on those where the beauty of the melody is such that I don't see why we cannot take advantage of them just as the singers do!
      I hope you will enjoy playing them as much as I do.
-Sir James Galway
