(B). Qin melodies2

Many qinpu collections were published in the Ming dynasty, but the number of notable new works did not exceed that of Song dynasty. There were, in particular, few qin songs with lyrics that can be considered successful. From this period, instrumental melodies such as the large-scale Qiu Hong, the medium-scale Yan Luo Ping Sha and Yu Qiao Wen Da, and the small-scale Liang Xiao Yin have been very popular in the last few centuries. Shi Tan Zhang was a new type of work taken from other musical genres. Yi Qiao Jin Lu is a narrative qin song that takes its material from a historical story. Boya Diao Ziqi is an expressive qin song sketch.
