Victorian Playlist

After having so much fun researching and speaking about the music that surrounded Queen Victoria, in her personal and public life, I have decided to create a Spotify playlist of some of that music.  It's a crazy anachronism, I know, but if I put it on a wax cylinder or one of Edison's machines, I don't think it would be as useful for you. 

Whether you're a fan of Victoria from Masterpiece on PBS, a history buff, or just listening for a weird mix of tunes, check it out, and I hope you enjoy.  

* Some of the tracks from the show itself won't play - I hope to figure out what is up with that asap.

** Bonus track: The British Library has the program from Victoria's coronation available to view online!
