Period Drama Soundtracks

A list of beautiful period drama soundtracks to listen to while writing, compiled by my fabulous critique partner and fellow writer extraordinaire, June Hur!

vanityfair2004-still11 I was with one of my writing friends, Kerrie Mcreadie (founder of   Spectatorial   and also a novel-writer), at a coffee shop, working away on our individual manuscripts.

It was pretty noisy where we sat, so she asked me to recommend a soundtrack she could listen to while writing. Right then, a list of period drama soundtracks scrolled endlessly through my mind. I ended up recommending The Crimson Petal and the White’s soundtrack, which she ended up really liking.

So I decided to compile here a few other period drama soundtracks that I often listen to while writing. Hopefully this list (though it’s a small list – I’ll post more, little at a time) will come handy to those writing historical fiction. Or even a fantasy. Or romance. Or anything dramatic.
