Sources for Iolanthe Scores

You can purchase copies of Iolanthe scores from the following locations. They offer online, or at least e-mail, ordering, and shipment to anywhere in the world.

  • The Amber Ring has published full scores of the overture and "Fold your Flapping Wings". Parts also available.
  • Chappells of Bond Street, now at 152-160 Wardour Street, carry the scores for all 13 G&S operas and are willing to ship them anywhere in the world. Their telephone number is +44(0) 20 7432 4400.
  • IMSLP — The Schirmer edition of the vocal score can be downloaded as a PDF File.
  • Note8 Music Typesetting and Publishing — specializing in Gilbert and Sullivan orchestra materials. Typeset conductor's scores and orchestra parts for Sorcerer, Princess Ida, and Cox and Box. Rental of manuscript orchestra parts for Pinafore, Patience, Iolanthe, Mikado, and Yeomen.
  • Opus 1 Music — Exclusive North American agents for rental of "The Newby Scores" of the 13 G&S operas. The arrangements are scored for as few as 12 or 13 instrumentalists (or as many as the music director cares to include) and still maintain a balanced, artistic accompaniment. The "Newby Scores" have been used all over the English-speaking world.
  • John Pitts: New, easy-to-use reduced band arrangements of Iolanthe for flute/piccolo, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, optional trumpet, violin, bassoon, keyboard and drums (as used by Bristol Savoy Operatic Society). £100 hire per week plus P&P (plus deposit) . Also available: Pirates and Gondoliers.
  • Pattersong Music - Reduced orchestrations of The Mikado, Pirates, Iolanthe, HMS Pinafore & Patience are available for hire from Martin Paterson. The 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 much for the singers. Each arrangement is typically for Piano and 6-7 winds and strings.
  • PJ Music Works has produced a new orchestration, first performed by Radlett Light Operatic Society (UK) November 2009.   This new version has single wind and brass together with percussion and strings and can be performed effectively with 15 instrumentalists whilst providing colour and balance as close to the original as possible. Available for hire.
