From The Library… A Victorian Music Festival

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 26 December, 2007

Today’s programme for Boxing Day consists of a variety of pieces of music that would have been familiar to a Victorian audience, from popular ballads and the waltzes, notably those composed by members of the Strauss family that became popular during this period and laid the foundation for today’s New Years Day performances live from Vienna, to classical pieces and extracts from the light opera of Gilbert & Sullivan.

From The Library is presented by Radio Riel in conjunction with the Caledon Library in Second Life, and today’s programme was produced by Elrik Merlin. For more information on the Caledon Library, current exhibits and the work of Second Life reference libraries in general, please visit the Caledon Library Web site, or one of their locations in-world.

• You can listen to the program now at http://music.radioriel.org, or simply visit any Caledon Library branch in-world and press Play on your embedded music player.
