I can thoroughly recommend the Northern Opera Much Ado. Only piano accompaniment but magnificent. I hope we can expect a full recording of the work one day. Jeanie Deans of course exists in substantial extracts on Hyperion. I would love to hear some Goring Thomas or Mackenzie operas though.

On a previous post I included the following paragraph:

Perhaps the recent Northern Opera Group's performance of Stanford's Much Ado About Nothing [see: http://www.northernoperagroup.co.uk/much-ado-about-nothing/4594599648 ] might make it to, at least, a privately available CD.  One can only hope. More than a hour of excerpts from this opera (5 in total), from an earlier 2016 performance accompanied by piano, can be accessed from: https://soundcloud.com/northernoperagroup/sets/much-ado-about-nothing-by-charles-villiers-stanford

Many thanks for alerting me and hopefully many others to these extracts from an excellent performance. Although without orchestra it is a rare privilege to hear such skill and commitment dedicated to neglected British opera. I would also echo the wish for some Mackenzie (especially Colomba, 1883, and The Cricket on the Hearth, 1901) and Goring Thomas' Esmeralda, 1883. Excellent!

A piece is worth your attention, and is itself for you praiseworthy, if it makes you feel you have not wasted your time over it. (SG, 1922)
