During the first half of the 1990s, Andrew Penny recorded five Sullivan discs for Naxos/Marco Polo. One is a decent CD of Gilbert and Sullivan Overtures. The other four contain purely Sullivan Without Gilbert works (SWOGs). Of those four, I would mark this one as the least essential.

Initially promising, the suite of incidental music for The Merchant of Venice is variable in quality. The infectious Bourrée and the whirling Finale are the strongest numbers, but are also available on a better-played recording from EMI with the Introduction and Waltz as well (Gilbert & Sullivan: Ruddigore; The Merchant of Venice Suite - also includes some of Sullivan's music for The Tempest, Op. 1).

The Danse Grotesque is a missed opportunity. Rather than being delightfully weird, it is repetitive and boring. The Barcarole (Serénade) is a bit better, but Emmanuel Lawler's performance scarcely makes a strong case for it. Lawler's contribution to the Incidental Music to Henry VIII in the form of King Henry's Song is better. The song itself is not particularly inspired (it's a sort of dull version of the Duke's cut song from Patience), but it is pleasant enough. The best number from the music for Henry VIII is the Graceful Dance, which has the distinction of being the first overture to "The Sorcerer" before Sullivan and his assistants could get something together from the themes of the opera itself.

The Sapphire Necklace Overture, to Sullivan's early (now lost) serious opera, holds a good deal of interest. Though not as dramatically informed as Sullivan's Macbeth Overture, The Sapphire Necklace is at least good enough to deserve wider recognition.
