Glorvina was the pet name given to the Irish author Sydney Owenson, Lady Morgan, after the celebrated heroine of her novel “The Wild Irish Girl”.
David D’Angers bust of the author is located in the Sculpture gallery, Room 22, at the V&A and is perhaps a romanticised image of Lady Morgan, who was apparently less than four feet tall, had a slight deformity of the spine and one eye larger than the other.
Glorvina was created in its entirety (melodies and rhythms, as well as the spoken text) using the author’s own introduction to her novel, “St. Claire; or, The heiress of Desmond”. The piece was made at the Experimentalstudio des SWR in Freiburg using Thomas Hummel’s conTimbre: new multimedia database of the contemporary orchestra (www.contimbre.com). The piece was commissioned by the BBC for the V&A, as part of the Proms Cage Walk 2012.
