Mo li hua (Jasmine) is a dual-language publication suitable for Chinese- or English-speaking choirs. A collection of arrangements of five well-known traditional Asian songs, it combines Chinese text and English singing translations. Four of the songs, depicting the simplicity and beauty of everyday life, are drawn from across China, while 'A li lang', is one of Korea's most celebrated songs. 'A li lang' and 'Mo li hua' were both written for The Bach Choir and David Hill, who gave the premiere of these while on tour in China in April 2014.
