Connecting the art of the de Morgans with songs

Cannon Hall houses part of the national de Morgan collection of art. Sarah Gardy, the national director, will choose paintings and ceramics from the collection to talk about. These will be match with songs that will be performed live. For example, the painting of the waters of Babylon evoke strong feelings of the pain of homesickness so the matching songs are by Ivor Gurney who yearned for his native Cotswolds when he was on the Somme in 1917. Evelyn de Morgan was a string believer in the afterlife and to match this we have Ad una morta by Puccini
