Amelia Opie and the Music of the War with France

This is an ongoing project carried out in collaboration with Gordon Smith of the Queen’s School of Music, designed to make available recordings of the lyrics written by Opie that were set to music. Eventually the recordings will be part of The Amelia Alderson Opie Archive, but for now here’s some informal video of “The Opie Singers”–four Queen’s music students with Gordon Smith accompanying, recorded at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Arts.
