From the Library: A Victorian Entertainment

In today’s pro­gramme in our series From the Library, we present a day of Vic­to­ri­an-themed music and enter­tain­ment, with songs and bal­lads of the music-hall & the salon, and music from the opera-house and dance-hall.

Thus, dear lis­ten­er, today we shall delight in pop­u­lar songs, sev­er­al of which may raise the heart while oth­ers bring a tear to the eye, and of which many have been per­formed by famous Artists with the Great­est Pos­si­ble Suc­cess; we shall also enjoy extracts from sev­er­al of the light operettas by Messrs Gilbert & Sul­li­van, which have received such acclaim in recent years, per­formed by the D’Oy­ly Carte Opera Com­pa­ny for whom they were writ­ten.

Pray take your seats, then, Lords, Ladies and Gen­tles, for a day of enter­tain­ment from days gone by, for your delec­ta­tion & plea­sure.

From the Library is pro­duced in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library; today’s pro­gramme was pro­duced by Elrik Mer­lin. You can lis­ten to it on our Main Stream as fol­lows:
