Autumn Night Song
(From Four Ancient Chinese Paintings (Suite))

Available from Morning Star Music Publishing at or 800-647-2117
Number three in the cycle, the typical downward arpeggios of the zheng (16 string zither) accompany this piece. A fresh chill of fall appears before summer clothes have been changed for the cooler season. A slow coda allows for reflection on the poem's last lines and moves the successive words of the text from one voice to another. Text is sung in Chinese, with English sub-text. Translation and pronunciation guide included.
