The music is mostly less memorable, this being a highly British musical composed by an American (Charles Strouse, of Bye Bye Birdie and Annie), and suffers from a certain archness. It seems as though everyone is straitjacketed by the combination of their origins and the subject matter - "I and Albert" and "Just You and Me" are the highlights, and "Victoria" is a poignant ballad, but they weren't enough to carry the piece as a stage work.

I and Albert is a 1972 musical by composer Charles Strouse, and lyricist Lee Adams. The plot is based on the lives of Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and was adapted for the stage by Jay Presson Allen. The musical debuted in the West End at the Piccadilly Theatre on 6 November 1972, under the direction of John Schlesinger, but proved a flop, running only for three months, 120 performances.
Album: I And Albert (1972). Get the Sheet Music License This Song. songfacts ®. The title song from the I And Albert musical is sung solo in the original 1972 West End production by Polly James as Queen Victoria. Like the rest of the numbers in the show it has music by Charles Strouse (and barring one) lyrics by Lee Adams. Victoria married her first and only husband on February 10, 1840. If Queen Victoria did wish to be blessed with children as in this song, her wish came true in spades; she bore Albert no less than nine of them . More songs from Cast of I And Albert.
In Transit (Original Broadway Cast Recording). Amelie - A New Musical (Original Broadway Cast Recording). This release is a remastered and expanded reissue of the 1983 London cast recording, clocking in at a generous 79 minutes. The quasi-operatic score features a number of catchy if unremarkable tunes by Charles Strouse (who also provided lyrics, which he did not do for Annie and Bye, Bye Birdie). Clearly, though, the chief attraction here is the casting of a 22-year-old Sarah Brightman in the title role, before she became Mrs. Andrew Lloyd Webber. For excellent obscure Strouse, seek out I and Albert.
