Abstract:

Contains 26 settings of Chinese poetry, mainly from the Tang and Song dynasties (618-1279 A.D.). Fifteen are "modern" songs, composed in the first decade of the 21st century by Western-trained musicians, and 11 are "traditional" songs, composed in the first half of the 20th century by the earliest Chinese composers of Western-style art song. Songs are presented twice, first in a transposition for medium-to-high voice, then for medium-to-low voice, with the exception of the selections composed by Chin-Chin Chen, which are only in medium-to-high. Includes pronunciation guide, texts in Chinese (characters and Pinyin transliteration), word for word and poetic English translations, biographical notes on the composers and poets, and short commentary on each song.
