Shui Guang Lian Yan

 

水光潋滟

for SATB chorus

2014

Drinking on the lake; sunny at first, then rains

 

Ripples glisten away... charming under sunlight,

Mountain veiled by emptying haze... wonder in rain.

If one is to compare the West Lake to Xī Shī*,

She is just as entrancing, with make-up or without.

- Sū Shì (1037-1101) 

《飲湖上初晴後雨》

水光瀲灩晴方好,

山色空濛雨亦奇。

欲把西湖比西子,

淡妝濃抹總相宜。

﹣宋.蘇軾(1037﹣1101)
