The Bloomsbury Group remains of great public interest for its influence on art,literature and politics in the first half of the 20th century. Recordings of this informal association of writers, artists and intellectuals, which include Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Clive and Vanessa Bell, and Duncan Grant among others...

are brought together for the first time on a 2 CD set.

The recordings also include reminiscences by some of those who were associated or related to the group.

The CDs draw on long-unheard BBC broadcasts and recordings from the Charleston Trust, most of which are published for the first time. Other titles in the series have received press coverage in national newspapers in the UK and USA plus coverage on BBC radio.

Includes a 16 page introductory booklet.
