Gilbert & Sullivan – Dance a Cachucha

You can't really have a playlist of happy music and not include Gilbert and Sullivan – here's a request from my Mum.

My mother loves Gilbert and Sullivan and so she requested that I add this chorus from The Gondoliers to my little list. Some of my earliest memories of live performance are of going to see Weymouth Operatic Society G&S productions with Mum, including The Gondoliers and I used to enjoy playing G&S tunes on the recorder. In turn, Mum has a great story about being taken to see her grandfather singing in a production of Mikado when she was a girl and tells me how amazed she was when she heard the power of his voice.
