LISTEN TO THE SONG BY SHIRLEY :
Hi, friends, tonight, in my vocal music lesson I reviewed and recorded a song that is from a Chinese opera -- Ms. Jiang -- Praising Red Plum Blossom.
Opera Ms. Jiang was created and first performed in 1964. It talked a story that happened in 1949. As a leader of an army in local to fight again the Kuomintang army, after her husband was killed by the enemy, Ms. Jiang was arrested as well.
In the prison, she suffered many excruciations. Instead of choosing to tell the enemy the secret of her organization and to live in the world, she rather than chose to be killed in the execution ground with her song. This song "Praising Red Plum Blossom" was sang by Ms. Jiang to express her loyal heart that rather than to be a red plum blossom to blossom in the snow and to welcome the spring to come.
This opera was edited by Mr. Yan Su. Mr. Yang Ming, Jiang Chunyang and Jin Sa created the music..
MAIN MEANING OF THE SONG LISTEN TO THE SONG BY SHIRLEY :
Red plum blossom is blossoming on the red rock,
she is standing on the ice and frost of thousand miles,
she is not dare of the bitter cold in the winter,
her loyalty hear is opening to the sunshine.
Red plum blossom is blossoming,
every flower is sheening.
she is raising her head and blossoming thousands flowers
her sweet smelling are flying to clouds and sky,
she is waking all of flowers to blossoming together,
to sing and celebrate a new spring is coming...
