Wand’ring Minstrel: The Life of W. S. Gilbert

                                     Portrait of W S Gilbert

Picture of Canon Michael Hampel

written and narrated by Revd Canon Michael Hampel, 
Canon Precentor of St.Paul’s Cathedral

with singers Rachel ShannonAnna Boucher and Ian Ritchie 

and pianist Rachel Wheeler-Robinson

Michael Hampel, Canon Precentor of St Paul's Cathedral, has written this entertaining and fascinating story of the life of WS Gilbert, whose sparkling wit and biting satire joined with Arthur Sullivan's musical genius in a unique creative partnership. The narrative is punctuated and illustrated by some of the best loved songs from Gilbert and Sullivan's light operatic masterpieces, including The Gondoliers, The Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado, whose lyrics are as relevant to us today as they were to their astonished and delighted Victorian audiences.
