From The Library… A Victorian Music Festival

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.
