The Sir Arthur Sullivan Society, founded in 1977, exists to make Sullivan and his music better known and understood. We publish a Magazine three times a year and hold annual residential weekends devoted to the composer and his music.

Our main work is the promotion of top class recordings of Sullivan’s major works. In the past few years these have included The Golden Legend, The Prodigal Son, the Boer War Te Deum, The Contrabandista and The Foresters on Hyperion; Ivanhoe and The Beauty Stone on Chandos; and the complete incidental music for The Tempest and Macbeth on Dutton Epoch. A 2-CD survey of Sullivan’s art songs was issued on Chandos in 2017, and The Light of the World, Sullivan’s 1873 oratorio on the life of Christ, will be issued on Dutton Epoch by the end of 2017. We will be recording Haddon Hall in November 2018.

We also hold a substantial library of performing material, much of which is available for hire.
