Orchestrations for many of Gilbert & Sullivan (G&S) operettas are available from Pattersong Music. These arrangements are ideal for use in smaller venues, where either a full orchestra would not fit in the space available, or where the full orchestral sound would be too big for the singers.
I supply orchestrations for: The Mikado, The Pirates of Penzance, H.M.S. Pinafore, Trial by Jury, Gondoliers, Iolanthe, Ruddigore and Patience. Each arrangement is scored for nine players (eight for Patience).
The parts are professionally printed in a large, easy to read format and have been produced to the highest standard using the excellent Sibelius music notation program. Each set comes with a full conductor’s score.
The Pattersong Music arrangments use eight or nine players.
Each set comes with a full conductor’s score.
