Colourful patterns, rich tones and a huge variety of influences permeate Victorian style, and the music of this age of empire is the same - bold, bright and varied, ranging in style from traditional songs rediscovered to pieces by Queen Victoria's harpist and Prince Albert's favourite composer, Felix Mendelssohn.
