This gentle setting of a traditional Japanese poem captures the mystery of ancient Japan, with its haunting melody and simple harmonies. The Japanese text alternating with the English translation is easy to learn and evokes images of ages past. Included are both a pronunciation and translation guide. The finger cymbals compliment the distinctly Asian flavor of this piece, featuring open fourths and fifths.
