Night at the Opera - help Can't Post

Hello, I've got a brand new community choir and each term we're choosing a theme. For the summer term I thought I might broach the subject of classical music (so far it's been pop and showtunes). I want something like opera choruses or arias that are popular, but i think I really need them to be in English. Any ideas where I can get music that has been translated. Ideally it'd be an anthology.

I'm sure at school we used to sing all sorts of things in English.

The one that immediately jumps to mind is Opera Choruses, ed. John Rutter,in the Oxford Choral Classics series (ISBN 0-19-343693-0).

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll get that one ordered right away and then let you know how I get on!
