From the Library — A Victorian Entertainment

Today’s pro­gramme in our series From the Library recre­ates a Vic­to­ri­an musi­cal atmos­phere, with a com­bi­na­tion of orig­i­nal and mod­ern record­ings of pop­u­lar songs and bal­lads of the Vic­to­ri­an era, plus record­ings of mechan­i­cal instru­ments play­ing hit tunes of the times as might be found in the streets, pub­lic hous­es and par­lours of Vic­to­ri­an soci­ety.

Also includ­ed in the pro­gramme is a selec­tion of pop­u­lar dance tunes per­formed both by full orches­tra and by brass band in the style of the peri­od.

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme now at http://music.radioriel.org. Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin.
