About this work:

published by E.C.Schirmer


"Assent of the Swallow,' based on Oscar Wilde's "The Happy Prince" is a touching and lyrical tale about the love between two odd and dissimilar beings who give of themselves to help others.  The music is evocative and lyrical, full of color and the quiet passion of compassion.

An enjoyable performance piece with a subtle but powerful moral.
