05.50 - 06.21 on Shen Qi Mi Pu CD 6 #8

Title in Shen Qi Mi Pu (1425):
Reed blossoms on a moonlit night
(蘆花月夜 Lu Hua Yue Ye)
(The Shen Qi Mi Pu title is reversed with the 1546 and palace editions title for Section 9. Since the Section 10 music in 1425 is to my ears amongst the most dramatic in the whole piece, it is something of a puzzle that the palace version Section 10 image, as well as its different title, seem more appropriate to the music here than do the 1425 Section 10 title or the Palace image Residing amongst the reeds.)

 
1425 is completely different in its Section 10 (see insert at right): the palace edition Section 10 tablature begins and ends like its own (and 1425's) Section 9, but it has new material in the middle; I have not found this Palace version elsewhere.

1546 Section 10 (titled only Looking North 北望 Bei Wang) is basically same as 1425 Section 10, but there are several mistakes.
