This is the first of a new series of posts where we take an item or two from the thousands in the music stacks which has caught our eye for one reason or another and home in to find out more. I have chosen two, completely unrelated, works from a box of unbound music in the MRA.210 sequence resting quietly on the shelves underneath the Anderson Room which I came across when fetching something else for a reader. (It’s far too easy to get sidetracked here…).
- From the Stacks: a box of delights
- So many bicycles: Tour de France and the Cambridge Cycle of Songs
- A bicycle made for….
- Cambridge Composers : Richard Causton
- A different kind of FA: Hans Keller and football
