About This Work

The Major-General's Song is a patter song from Gilbert and Sullivan's 1879 comic opera ‘The Pirates of Penzance’. It is perhaps the most famous song in Gilbert and Sullivan's operas. It is sung by Major-General Stanley at his first entrance, towards the end of Act I. The song satirises the idea of the "modern" educated British Army officer of the latter 19th century and due to the It is one of the most difficult patter songs to perform, due to the fast pace and tongue-twisting nature of the lyrics.

Arranged for Brass Quintet by Geoff Kingston this will certainly prove to be a tongue twister for the ensemble and a great hit with your audience.
