From The Library… Voices in the Air

The human voice is one of the most ver­sa­tile, most basic and yet most inspir­ing musi­cal instru­ments there is, and this is nev­er more true than when voic­es are raised togeth­er in con­cert.

This week’s From The Library series show­cas­es the human voice with an extend­ed con­cert of choral works ancient and mod­ern, and a selec­tion of solo and small ensem­ble per­for­mances in a clas­si­cal and neo-clas­si­cal vein. The pro­gramme cov­ers the gamut of mate­r­i­al from the songs of the mediæ­val trou­ba­dours to vocal works by mod­ern com­posers in a vast and var­ied col­lec­tion that is suf­fi­cient­ly exten­sive that you are unlike­ly to hear the same piece twice dur­ing the week.

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life; today’s pro­gramme fea­tures music from the library of Elrik Mer­lin.
