Abstract

Part of the Performance-as-Commemoration project, this practice-as-research performance took place on the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme (1 July, 2016) at the Judge's Lodgings in Lincoln, and was later broadcast on BBC Radio Lincolnshire and BBC iPlayer. The performance is a response to the following research questions:

How can live performance 'commemorate' rather than 'memorialise' or 're-enact' significant historical events?

How can music and the musical archive commemorate loss?

Are there any unperformed compositions/arrangements of music from composers who fought and fell at the Somme?
