Classics on the Keys — Meet the King

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, 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:
