Chen Yi’s original "A Set of Chinese Folk Songs" included ten songs first arranged for vocal ensemble. Taken from a wide range of geographic regions in China, the expressive set has been sung by many choirs around the world in the past thirty years. Three songs from that collection have been thoughtfully arranged into a three-movement suite for intermediate string orchestras, bringing this beautiful Chinese folk music to even more young musicians. The celebratory Fengyang Song is from Anhui province, the lyrical love song Flowing Stream is from Yunnan province, and Mayila comes from the ethnic group known as Kazakhs.
