For full orchestra and baritone
Poem by Charles Brasch
This symphony by Jack Speirs was incomplete when he died in 2000. I edited the first 2 movements. It is yet to receive a public performance but the 2 movements were recorded in 2010 by the NZSO conducted by Luke Dollman with David Griffiths (baritone).
Symphony: the islands is scored for: 3*333; 4331; timpani, percussion, harp and strings.
Percussion: 3 drums, suspended cymbal and side drum
