The Merrie Men of Sherwood Forest

The Merrie Men of Sherwood Forest

"The Merrie Men of Sherwood Forest, or Forest Days in the Olden Time" is a pastoral operetta in three acts. The words and music were written by W. H. Birch and the work was published by John Blockley of Argyll Street, London.

Performance history

In 1871 it was performed in concert by the Doncaster Musical Society, and then again in 1872. A critic noted the derivative nature of the work, remarking that it was "suggestive of others". As with many of Blockley's operettas, the work could be performed free of charge.
