Today is an appropriate occasion to be reminded that composer Stephen McNeff's new work 'Names of the Dead' - which features the names of people killed (from all sides) in the first few weeks of the last Iraq War, set to music - makes its debut on 12 and 13 September 2003, at the Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) , Lavender Hill, London SW11. Shocking and moving, the piece is directed by BAC's Tom Morris and Mark Espiner, with The Duke Quartet and Adey Grummet (sop). A number of McNeff's other works have been developed here, including 'Passions' and 'The Babysitter' (John Hegley Songs).
