Main: From the Library: Music of Yesteryear

Today on Radio Riel in our 10th Anniver­sary Week we return to our roots as we present a col­lec­tion of music from the Vic­to­ri­an and Edwar­dian eras. It’s typ­i­cal of the pro­gram­ming you would have heard on Radio Riel back in the days when we pre­sent­ed pro­gram­ming spon­sored by the Cale­don Library enti­tled “From The Library”. Today’s pro­gramme fea­tures music from the library of Elrik Mer­lin.

In fact the pro­gramme runs from around the mid-19th Cen­tu­ry to around the end of the First World War.

The show cov­ers a wide range of musi­cal styles and gen­res, from music-hall songs to par­lour bal­lads, from clas­si­cal pieces to waltzes and dance-hall music, and music from mechan­i­cal instru­ments of the peri­od (plus some rather more recent, but you’ll have to spot them). Record­ings are a mix­ture of mod­ern and vin­tage.


Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. If you are in the Unit­ed States, please click here to launch the Stream Licens­ing play­er.
