From the Library: English Classics

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.
