Today we muse on living books. We talk about the definition of a living book, why we offer so many options at Wildwood, how we personally pick books for the curriculum, and how we think you should pick them for yur home.

Moonlight on the Ching Yang River written by Yu Shinan


Lesson Plan Section #1 = https://folkways.si.edu/discovering-east-china-elementary-school/lullaby-vocal-outdoor-solo-programmatic/music/tools-for-teaching/smithsonian

CD Liner notes: https://folkways-media.si.edu/liner_notes/folkways/FW06812.pdf

Note: “Moonlight on the Ching Yang ( Xun_vang) River” (2:02). This piece dates from the Tang dynasty and is attributed to Yu Shinan. The pipa and the erhu play much of the main melodic line in unison. The Xiao  embellishes the melody and  ornaments some of the longer notes. This is a performance of Jiangnan fichu by an early touring group from Shanghai. ~The Concise Garland Encyclopedia of World Music
