Gardens of Pleasure, music entertainment in 19th century London

During the 18th and 19th centuries, many of London’s parks and gardens were opened to the public. Only one step should be taken to open the “pleasure” gardens – for a small fee – walking, refreshing, entertaining and… music!

“Jordins to Blazer” music

Gardens – especially Voxhall – known by many great composers such as Handel – offer a wide variety of music. The discourses (a king in the organ gardens) are mixed with rhythms such as “Voxhall songs”, solo songs, duets and small contours. But music, music shows are very popular. But the main attraction is the excellent opera stars who performed there.
