Did you know that there are about thirty seconds worth of actual film footage of the funeral of Queen Victoria, in February, 1901?
I didn't know that, until I started trying to work up a post (or series of posts) comparing & contrasting the musical culture of a hundred years ago to that of today - complete with illustrative music videos...
Anyway, I've incorporated said film footage into my new YouTube vid (starting at about 1:56):
Enjoy the music, if you can. More later.
