From the Library: Lutes, Ouds, and Guitars

These stringed instru­ments are fea­tured on today’s From the Library in both instru­men­tal set­tings and as accom­pa­ni­ment to vocal­ists. Includ­ed for some vari­ety are Baroque and clas­si­cal gui­tar and oud (itself a type of lute).

Today’s pro­gram is from the library of Otenth Pader­born and is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel/tune_in; out­side the US, tune to http://main.radioriel.org, or sim­ply click here if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to launch a play­er auto­mat­i­cal­ly.

For more infor­ma­tion on the Alexan­dri­an Free Library, cur­rent exhibits and the work of Con­sor­tium mem­bers in gen­er­al, please vis­it the Alexan­dri­an Free Library web­site, or one of their branch­es in-world.
