I was asked to play this for tea ceremony for wedding. Can’t find music. Or something else Cantonese. I suggested Jasmine and some other songs from Flowers of the Orient. Bride especially wants this song. Thought I would ask here.
I don’t have sheet music for it, but would love it too if anyone has some. It’s one of my favorite love songs.
But it isn’t Cantonese, it’s Mandarin (han yu). And Barbara is correct, the proper spelling in Chinese PinYin is Yue Liang Dai Biao Wo De Xin. I don’t know if the forum will display it with the tone marks, but I will try here:
yuè liang dài biǎo wǒ de xīn
If I were on my home computer I would give you the characters, but the computer I am on is not
OK, I am home now and will see if the Harp Column forum can handle Chinese:
The title of the song in Chinese characters is:
That may give better search results, although it will also probably bring up more Chinese only pages.
And yes, Michael is right, the translation of the title is The Moon Represents My Heart.
Thanks to those of you who helped me find the music to this beautiful piece. I played this today for a wedding while the couple had a tea ceremony. It was actually very beautiful. I have never played for a tea ceremony during a wedding before. Many of the guests were Chinese and many came up afterwards to tell me they know the song.
The Moon Represents My Heart is a beautiful chinese song. Were you able to download the sheet music from my website? Here is the complete music score:
