Sample: His Majesty’s Pleasure


A lively, earthy, show offering strong robust characters, based on real people, offering an evenly balanced variety of interesting roles, particularly strong female roles. The music of His Majesty’s Pleasure has a timeless quality; the 14 songs are wide-ranging in character, from the Irish pipe and drum to the delightful 18th Century style “And the Play Goes On”, evocative of Restoration theatre. They are boisterous, romantic, reflective, sad and comic – with large vocal numbers, ensembles, duets and solos; none of the harmonic singing is difficult, merely challenging. The music is well within the scope of a good amateur orchestra, being scored for strings, pairs of woodwinds and brass, percussion and drum kit.
