The Saskatchewan Suite , Landis Maitland-Whitelaw

Ft. Qu’Appelle (2001/2001) Time: 3’07”,was that last of the set to be written. It depicts the city and region known as Ft. Qu’Appelle in Saskatchewan Canada. Historically it has a mixture of cultures, Native, French, and European. I tried to depict a harmonious blend of the cultures even though historically it was not all that harmonious but today it is a jewel on the prairies.   

The recording part of this is the same as the other 2 pieces with the exception of the snare, I used LABS for this and I also included the use of Wood Blocks from the BBC Orchestra. 

You can hear a representation of the piece here on SoundCloud.
