Tokuyama has given a formula that is a deformation of the Weyl denominator formula for sl(n). This formula can also be considered as a generalization of the ratio of alternants formula for Schur functions. Here we derive a symplectic version of Tokuyama's result, namely a deformation of Weyl's denominator formula for sp(2n). We further show how it specializes to give symplectic versions of a number of classical identities.
