Today’s programme leads on from yesterday’s: we continue with our collection of keyboard classics, but now with the addition of pieces for the mighty organ — the “King of Instruments”.

Organ selections range from the small-scale Renaissance and mediaeval portative types right up to full-blown romantic works played on some of the grandest church organs in the world.

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin and produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with our friends at the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the programme in-world now at http://main.radioriel.org, or simply click here to start your player, if your browser is configured to do so. Listeners in the United States are encouraged to tune in using this link: http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel/tune_in

For more information on the Alexandrian Free Library, current exhibits and the work of Consortium members in general, please visit the Alexandrian Free Library website, or one of their branches in-world.
