In 1940, two young musicians working in the anti-Japanese war efforts took the folk tune Twelve-Month DittyLittle Tune of Yi Meng Shan. Over time, many people have set different texts to this tune. In 1998, ZHANG Yi-Da was commissioned by Professor Wu Ling Fen to arrange this Chinese traditional song for choir. It praises the beautiful scenery and happy life of the Yi Meng Shan people.
