  •     This vocal score of The Yeomen of the Guard, one of Gilbert & Sullivan's finest operas, is a fairly poor reprint of a score first printed by Chappell & Co. in the early 20th Century. The size of each page has been reduced by about half, making it impractical for performance use, and the print quality is dreadfully uneven. (One page, page 16, missing entirely in my copy.)It would be one thing if this score were baing sold on the cheap; for instance, I have no qualms about the mediocre reprints of old Mozart scores I bought some years ago. But a list price of $27.45 is outrageously high for a shoddy study-score like this one.If you're loking for a vocal score of The Yeomen of the Guard, the Schirmer and Chappell edition each have their own problems, but they are each much better, and cheaper, than this one.
