Music of the Victorian & Edwardian Eras

Today on Radio Riel we present a col­lec­tion of music from the Vic­to­ri­an and Edwar­dian eras.

In fact the pro­gramme runs from around the mid-19th Cen­tu­ry to around the end of the First World War. This peri­od — or parts of it — were var­i­ous­ly referred to as La Belle Epoque in France and the Gild­ed Age through the Pro­gres­sive Era in the Unit­ed States.

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.

Then please join us for the lat­est in our series of chill­ing tales from the land­mark radio dra­ma series, The Black Mass, at 11am or 7pm Pacif­ic Time (19:00 and 03:00 in the UK).
