Judy Tarling,
Specialist in Historical Performance (music and gardens)

6.30 pm Wednesday 27 February,

The Gallery, 70 Cowcross Street

Judy Tarling will talk about how music was performed and experienced in gardens from Renaissance Italy to Georgian England, illustrated with musical example and images. She will investigate who played which instruments, where, the nature of the audience if there was one, and the repertoire. Judy will show how music, from the sound of water and bird-song to fully staged dramatic performances, was an essential part of the historical garden from the 16th to 18th centuries.
