First performed by Mary Rowell and Denman Maroney and recorded by the Belgian radio March, 2000.

Brass Swale (1988) 5", tbn, 2 Bfl tpts, bar. hn
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.

January Swale (1995) 5', 2 vln, vla, vc
First performed by the Clearwater String Quartet. This is a swale that includes a lot of partying framed by a theme going forwards at the beginning and backwards near the end, a Janus. Because it was written with cellist Carol Buck and her children, there is a small children's theme just after the introduction which runs in and out later on in the piece. An aeolian alleluia interupts and returns later a half-step down. It ends with a feeling of a "starry night" at the original tonal center.

Arrondissement (reorchestrated) (1996) 15', cl, pn, vla
