Description: Tonal. Commissioned/Premiered by the Redlands' New Music Ensemble. (A swale is a meadow or a marsh where a lot of wild plants grow together. The composer discovered the word when a horse named Swale won the Kentucky Derby several years ago. Since her work is primarily collage of newly composed musical swatches, she has used the name extensively.) This is a brass quintet.
