THE FLOWER DRUM And Other Chinese Songs by Chin-Hain Yao & Shih-Hsiang Chen

THE FLOWER DRUM And Other Chinese Songs

Email this review


Available material is inadequate to make possible more than an announcement that this is to be a collection of Chinese folk music which is virtually the first thing of its kind published for Westerners. There are to be five types of songs, ancient and modern, with accompaniments which preserve the character of the originals. Available at time of writing are the connecting passages of descriptive, introductory, explanatory material, tracing the historical and legendary backgrounds.
