Commissioned by the Festival of Bands, Brisbane 1988, for the Bicentennial World Brass Band Championship held there on 29th July, ENDEAVOUR takes its title from the name of the ship in which Captain James Cook circumnavigated the world and attempts to depict in music some aspects of the history of the great continent which he discovered.

THE UNKNOWN CONTINENT tells the story of the many fruitless voyages undertaken to find the mysterious ‘Terra Australis’ and conjures up something of the awe and excitement its discovery engendered. Early struggles and hardships of the first settlers are described in THE NEW CHALLENGE but the true story of Australia over the last 200 years is one of success and CELEBRATION ends the piece in triumph.
