Music for St Ives was commissioned by Adrian King for his Brio Brass Ensemble who gave the first performance at the St Ives September Festival in Cornwall on the 16th September 1981. It was later played by the Philip Jones Ensemble. It has four very distinctive movements ranging from the furious energy of the first to the exhilaration of the last where a Cornish hymn can be heard amidst all the wild excitement.
- Quasi Allegretto
- Lento espressivo
