From the Library: English Classics

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Sunday, 12 April, 2009

Vaughan Williams, Elgar, Delius and Bliss all feature in today’s programme in our series From the Library, brought to you today by Elrik Merlin.

We’ll be including familiar favourites like Elgar’s Enigma Variations and Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending but also less well-known works such as Elgar’s Nursery Suite, in a uniquely restored performance conducted by the composer, and Sir Arthur Bliss’s Suite based on his music for the film of HG Wells’s Things to Come.

Most, but not all, of the programme is peaceful and relaxed, and hopefully forms a suitable companion to a quiet Sunday.

From the Library is produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with the Caledon Library in Second Life. 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.

You can listen now at — the ideal URL for you to use in your home parcel media address in-world — or simply visit any Caledon Library branch in-world and press Play on your embedded music player. (If you want to listen off-world, eg in Winamp or iTunes, and the above address doesn’t work for you, click here.)
