  1. My research indicates there is a vocal score published by “A H and C”. Have you heard of it?


    • Hello. Thanks for you message. I am not aware of any vocal score for Yvonne, although various individual songs were published in sheet form. There was also a selection of tunes from the show for the piano published by Ascherberg, Hopwood & Crew Ltd., London. All these would have been in 1926.
      I’m sorry I cannot help you with information on an entire vocal score.
      Best wishes
      John
