From the Library…The Music of The Nightingale

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Tuesday, 3 June, 2008

In honor of the first anniversary of Radio Riel, today I (Gabrielle Riel) am playing “The Music of The Nightingale”…all of my favorite Classical pieces and composers.

It was with sheer joy that I sat down and thought about all of the Classical music that means something to me. When I was done, I had 8.5 hours of music. Looking at the playlist, I confirmed something that I already knew: I am a total *nut* for 20th Century Classical music. 95% of today’s music is just that. You will hear pieces by Gustav Holst, Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinksy, Maurice Ravel, Modest Mussorgsky, Richard Strauss II, Ralph Vaughan Williams, John Rutter and by my favorite composer of all time: Aaron Copland.

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Caledon Library in Second Life. Today’s music originates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.

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 to the program now at, or simply visit any Caledon Library branch in-world and press Play on your embedded music player.
