From the Library: Vocal Magic

In today’s pro­gramme, Elrik Mer­lin presents a selec­tion of music for the human voice, from Mediæ­val times to the present. Both sec­u­lar and a lit­tle sacred music is includ­ed, so today’s show will be quite var­ied, includ­ing trou­ba­dour songs, Renais­sance choral works, tra­di­tion­al Eng­lish folk-songs sung by artists like the King’s Singers, and mod­ern works such as those of Karl Jenk­ins, Lib­era, and Don­na McK­e­vit­t’s haunt­ing set­tings of Derek Jar­man’s poet­ry.

The pro­gramme focus­es pri­mar­i­ly on less­er-known works and on small­er vocal ensem­bles, rather than either solo or large-scale per­for­mances, but exam­ples of both are also includ­ed.

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin.
