This volume brings to an end the transcription and description of thirty-one items from the Court Entertainment Music of the Tang. Of particular interest are a tune for a birthplace-ode by the Taizong Emperor, music for spear throwing, and a piece imitating calls between sexual partners in a flock of geese. Important appendices discuss stylistic differences between music of the Tang and imitative Japanese compositions, Tang compositions with military associations, and relatedness between movements in suites from the Tang.
