Notes: Kenilworth's libretto was widely panned, but, to be fair, the author was trying to imitate an entertainment of a different day. The only piece to last long after its original performance was No 7, a setting of bits of Act V, Scene 1 of Merchant of Venice rather cleverly cut and pasted into a longer song. Sullivan would go on to write several settings of Shakespearian works after this, but, with the exception of two or so songs, would never set another libretto of Chorley's.
