Misc. Comments

  • This is a vocal composition on the same titled poem by the great ancient Chinese litterateur Ōuyáng Xiū(欧阳修)from the Sòng Dynasty(宋朝). The title literally means "magnolia", but it's just a structure name (词牌名)of the poem, and the poem itself is the lyrics for a relative piece of music of that time. We call this kind of poems "Sòng Cí"(宋词),which means "lyrics from Sòng Dynasty".
