a moment for mutterings

To take a short break from working, and for the edification of all who might drift by this blog:

My favorite mutterings from William S. Gilbert & Sir Arthur Sullivan, the first of which jcobleigh and I are acting/dancing/singing in the show for this November. (Click here for pictures from last year's production of H.M.S. Pinafore.) These lyrics are sung very quickly with the orchestra racing along beside the singer:

"This particularly rapid, unintelligible patter
Isn't generally heard, and if it is it doesn't matter!"

- from Ruddigore


And my most favorite:

To sit in solemn silence in a dull, dark dock,
In a pestilential prison, with a life-long lock,
Awaiting the sensation of a short, sharp shock,
From a cheap and chippy chopper on a big black block!

- from The Mikado


Try singing that three times fast! :)
