Teardrops From the Misty Past

Translated from the Chinese title 燕沁忆

Alto 12-hole ocarina in F; song played in C


From the album cover:

This melody carries a distinctive Chinese style. The title is inspired by a verse from a poem written by the poet Zhu Dun Ru who lived during the Song Dynasty. This verse translates as, "Face (of the girl) so full of tears that (her) red (rouge) makeup dissolved, sadly the flower of the Chinese flowering crab tree was blown away (by the wind)" [a poetic way of expressing the deep grief and sadness of a young woman]. Thousands of years of culture carry their influence into our present day. This song uses the ocarina to embody these millennia of change.
