Tour London in music

Tour London through music. The city is gridlocked by the paranoid Olympics, so you can't do it any other way. Even the government is saying "Don't go into town!".  Which defeats the purpose of the whole exercise. I'd be at the Wigmore Hall tonight for Prégardien/Drake but can't face traffic mayhem. Go if you can, it will be good.

So enjoy In London Town : A musical tour of the historic sights of London, a new release from independent label SOMM records. Visit the Tower, Rotten Row, the Royal Thames and take in the Blitz, too.  Visualize!
