W. S. Gilbert -published before 1890) (original music composed by A. S. Sullivan--published before 1890) This work is an arrangement.

Composer's note:  These two settings complete a group of 10 settings, for chorus a cappella (4 each for SATB and TTBB), of arias from G&S operettas made around 2002, with some overlapping titles (e.g., There Grew A Little Flower, arranged for SATB [as one of 4 settings published by ACA] as well as the present SSAA setting). The settings were originally commissioned by a venture publishing firm that went out of business before engraving. Having recently been engraved, all 10 settings will presently by in the ACA catalog. The SSAA setting of There Grew A Little Flower was made in response to the catastrophic events of 09/11/2001 and dedicated "to the fallen: 09/11/2001". The other 9 settings bear no dedication. New arrangement of Two Settings completed in 2018.
