A beautiful selection of traditional Chinese music

A selection of traditional Chinese music and song ...

The first film is from the CCTV Spring Festival Gala 2013, with singer Na Ying. The song : [Because of You, My Life is] A Warm Spring With Blooming Flowers. In 2015, the Spring Festival (Chinese New Year) runs from the 19th to the 25th February. The second is from China's National Games Opening Ceremony in 2009. The song is Like A Dream. The third film features the music 'Legend of Chinese Mountains' and is about the five sacred mountains of China and the Chinese love of nature and balance with nature. Fourth is 'Your Collar', a romantic song from the imperial music of the Han Dynasty. Fifth song is 'A Nation of Greatness and Courtesy' and is about the Chinese character of virtue and friendship. Greatness in Chinese thinking is virtue; all three core Chinese philosophies - Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism - stress that strength and happiness (well-being) lies in balance, not power (dominance). The last film features music from a documentary about the DaMing Palace (DaMing Gong) of the Tang Dynasty, at the heart of the dynasty's capital Chang'An (which means 'eternal peace'). The palace area is a little north east of the city of Xi'An in ShaanXi province.
