Responding to the theme of War and Peace, An Anzac Reflection references The Last Post on viola at the start and end of the work, framed within a hypnotic broken chord piano accompaniment. This opening leads into a more indulgent section, exploiting double stopping in viola and wide-spread accompanying chords exploring the extremities of the piano. A lilting melody filled with lush sounding double-stopping ensues, before the music heads towards a jazzy swing ballad feel, with piano and viola alternating melodic phrases. After a return of the earlier lilting melody on viola, the piece comes to a close, with another brief reference to The Last Post.
