(Poll): “This ebullient dish-up of Sullivan is played here with tremendous élan in the merry bits and delightful expressiveness in the sentimental ones. In fact this version is much better played and recorded than either of its rivals, and if one were to be solemn one might describe it as the definitive recording in stereo. Unreservedly recommended.” (Gramophone) (Overtures): “recording is first class, bright and clean with keen strings and a good firm bass, …and the performance under Sir Malcolm Sargent is so affectionately shaped” (Gramophone)
