There's a lot to like in this Telarc version, but I think the decision to keep in on one disk caused too many compromises. And, of course, Telarc never completed the series. So if you want a full G&S set, you turn to what, in my opinion, is the best set. That would be the Decca (London) versions now available in a budget box with 24 CDs. These are by the D'Oyly Carte company, recorded under the authority and with the assistance of the company in the 50's and 60's, mostly. The Decca recordings are excellent and hold up extremely well against modern recordings which are not as "G&S authentic".
