Winter 2008: A Gilbert & Sullivan Christmas Carol


The song "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear" is not part of the script as written by Mr. Wren, and of course is not part of any G&S operetta. However, the version you will hear tonight is an arrangement by Sir Arthur Sullivan and as the theme of the song fits well with the story, we thought it would be an excellent opening to our show this Christmas Season.
