Programme Note

Song of Peace, which comes from the third movement of Symphony 1997 (Heaven Earth Mankind)(see More Info tab for link), blossoms with joyous melodies, although wartime's drums are not yet far in the past; children's voices, optimistic but worldwise, look to the future. Written in the spirit of Li Po and recalling Schiller's text to "Ode to Joy," Tan's anthem seeks the reunification of nature and soul in an enduring, harmonious world order.

— Mary Lou Humphrey
