for chamber orchestra [1-1-1-1, 2-1-1, harp, 4 perc., strings] voices and narrator
Publisher: E.C. Schirmer

Based on Oscar Wilde’s fairy tale, The Happy Prince, Wallach’s Assent of the Swallow 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.
