From the LIbrary: Rule Britannia!

Today’s pro­gramme includes a wide vari­ety of music with a British theme, from the music hall to the con­cert hall, includ­ing well-known clas­si­cal themes like Han­del’s Zadok the Priest, Elgar­’s Pomp & Cir­cum­stance march­es, and the Fan­ta­sia on British Sea Songs, to Gilbert & Sul­li­van and Vic­to­ri­an and Edwar­dian bal­lads that were favourites among British audi­ences in the ear­ly part of the 20th cen­tu­ry.

You’ll also hear from Eric Coates and a wealth of oth­er pop­u­lar com­posers from the past cou­ple of hun­dred years and there’s a cer­tain “last night of the Proms” feel to some of the music.

This pro­gramme 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://main.radioriel.org . Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Edward Pearse.
