EMI has re-released on 16 compact discs  recordings of  nine operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent--Trial by Jury, HMS Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, Patience, Iolanthe, The Mikado, Ruddigore, The Yeomen of the Guard, and The Gondoliers--in a budget-priced, space-saving box (without librettos).  Sargent used very good singers, and recorded the music of the operettas without the dialogue.
