目錄 Table of Contents

At present this table of contents mentions the essays but does not list them separately. It then follows the order in QQJC X by listing first the 60 melodies published in the original Huiyan Mizhi, then from Huiyan Mizhi Ding listing only the 16 melodies it added or revised. Huiyan Mizhi Ding, as re-published in a modern facsimile edition, groups all the pieces together; it has only 73 entries as it does not include the original versions of three revised melodies, #61, #69 and #73.2

    4 sections; lyrics written at end of each section; no musical relationship to earliest version

  64. Guilai Qu (X/262)
    3 sections; 2nd of 8 after 1625

  65. Lu Feng (Customs of Lu; X/264)
    15 sections; only here: other three occurrences of this title are a different melody
          (in 1705 [XIII/331], ≥1802 [XIX/84] and 1876 [=1705])
    No commentary here but 1705 connects it to attitude of Confucius; 47030.80: only 魯風鞋 Lu Feng Xie

    (Shang mode)

  66. Qiao Yao Ge (X/268)
    7 sections; only here

  67. Xia Feng Ge (X/269)

    (Jiao mode)

  68. Ju Wu Yin (X/271)

    (Shangjue mode)

  69. Zhuang Zhou Meng Die (X/274)

    (Zhi mode)

  70. Lan Ke Xing (X/277)
    7 sections; only here, 1691 and 1876

  71. Sumen Chang Xiao (X/279)
    7 sections; earliest (?) of six, the next being 1691, 1705, 1802, 1876 and 1894.

  72. An Le Wo Ge (X/281)
    4 sections; lyrics by Shao Yong are placed at the end of each section instead of directly paired; #76 below is a completely different tune with the same title. See also 1691 (XII/584; as below but pairs words) and 1878 1878 (XXIV/missing); Section 1 of Xing Xin Ji (1585 IV/354) has this title but is unrelated.

    7221.491 安樂窩 An Le Wo refers to the home of 邵康節, i.e., Shao Yong. For this, William Dolby, Chinese Allusions, An-Le Wo, has:

    "'Nest of Peace and Joy', 'Peace-and-joy Nest'. This refers to the name which Shao Yung (1011-1077) gave to his house. It is alluded to as a synonym for: i) a place for avoiding governmental society and living an untrammelled, reclusive life,
    ii) a tranquil easy-life dwelling-place,
    iii) a place where politicians go to avoid the calamities and dangers of political life,
    iv) a peaceful home (/ -garden)."

    (Yu mode)

  73. Han Gong Qiu (X/283)

    8 sections; "as fixed in later years"; the same version is in
    1691 (XII/574) and 1876 (XXV/319)

    (Huangzhong mode)

  76. An Le Wo Ge (X/290)
    4 sections; lyrics at the end of each section; same lyrics but completely different melody from #72 above
    Same melody and lyrics in 1691 (XXV/605), 1876 (XII/584) & perhaps 1878 (XXVI/missing), but for the latter they are paired next to the tablature instead of placed at the end

    Afterword (X/293)

Footnotes (Shorthand references are explained on a separate page)

1. Table of Contents for Huiyan Mizhi (1647)
Pages as in QQJC Volume X. This also includes melodies from Huiyan Mizhi Ding, but some handbooks say their version comes from Yin Ertao (usually referring to him as 尹芝仙 Yin Zhixian or just Zhixian), and yet the melody is not in either of these two editions (example). I do not know whether this means that there was at least one more edition of Huiyan Mizhi or if that was a mistake.

2. Table of Contents of the QQJC and Facsimile editions
The facsimile edition was published by 中國書店 Zhongguo Shudian in Beijing, 2006.
