Spotify Playlist for English 129

4589602254_12e8dc9bc9For your listening pleasure, I have created a Spotify playlist of music that is mentioned or alluded to in our course readings. It includes songs from Balfe’s opera The Bohemian Girl that are featured in both East Lynne and Framley Parsonage, as well as pieces by Rossini and Donizetti that Fosco performs in The Woman in White. The version of Balfe’s “When Other Lips” that I played for you at the beginning of class last week, by OperaBabes, is no longer available on Spotify, so I have added one by Heddle Nash, and English tenor. Joseph Augustine Wade’s “‘Twere Vain to Tell Thee All I Feel” (mentioned in East Lynne) is not available on Spotify either, but I have added another of his songs: “Meet Me by Moonlight Alone.” So far there is about an hour  and a half of music; I will add more throughout the semester.
