From the Library: Music of the Victorian & Edwardian Eras

Today we fea­ture a range of music from the late 19th and ear­ly 20th cen­turies, includ­ing pop­u­lar songs and bal­lads, music from the dance-halls, and songs from musi­cals of the time – from Gilbert & Sul­li­van to Mock­ton’s Arca­di­ans.
The peri­od cov­ered extends to around 1920, although a few tracks are actu­al­ly a litle lat­er than that. The record­ings are a mix­ture of orig­i­nal tran­scrip­tions and mod­ern per­for­mances. We hope you enjoy today’s jour­ney into a bygone age.

The pro­gramme today is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and pro­duced by Radio Riel in asso­ci­a­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at
