Yung-Yang is a song for medium Voice with Piano accompaniment. It is based on a ninth century Chinese text, which was translated into English in 1916 by Launcelot Cranmer-Byng, and set to music in 1919.
Sir Granville Bantock (1868-1946) was a British composer, conductor and educator. He channelled his energetic and creative personality into many musical projects, championing the works of Jean Sibelius, founding the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and composing many splendid classical pieces. Viewed by his contemporaries as out-of-date, his music is now being appreciated as one of the last great contributions from the English Romantic movement.
