I don't remember if I've left a similar comment before, but I just want to say I love all your historical/period drama themed playlists! They are not just beautiful and relaxing, but also capture the atmosphere of passed eras so perfectly. Thank you for making these playlists and letting us hear such beautiful music!

I apologise if you can't listen to all 20 tracks I included in this mixtape. For some reason 8tracks likes to randomly eat songs sometimes. Not the first time it happens, sadly.
