Classical Collection with Sarah Walker. Classic recordings and great performances. The ethereal spirituality of Wagner's prelude to Lohengrin and a song on the subject of Courtly Love summon up the Medieval age, and there are classic recordings of Ethel Smyth's overture to the Wreckers & Schumann's Piano Quintet in E flat, Op.44.
