From the Library: A Victorian Entertainment

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Friday, 20 February, 2009

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:
