The Music of Yesterday

Today on Radio Riel we present a collection of music from the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

In fact the programme runs from around the mid-19th Century to around the end of the First World War.

The show covers a wide range of musical styles and genres, from music-hall songs to parlour ballads, from classical pieces to waltzes and dance-hall music, and music from mechanical instruments of the period (plus some rather more recent, but you’ll have to spot them). Recordings are a mixture of modern and vintage.
