Grand Music of Tang is a suite of 24 classical guitar pieces, each of which was inspired by a specific poem from the Tang Dynasty of China (618-907 AD). This work was commissioned by Japanese classical guitarist Mr. Kazuhito Yamashita in 1999. For No. 1. Deer Enclosure, the poem in Chinese and its English translation are shown below.

鹿 柴 (王維)

Deer Enclosure (Wang Wei, 699-761 AD, China)

In empty mountains not a soul in sight,
Yet I hear echoes of people talking on site.
Through thick woods comes dim twilight;
Its reflection on green moss seems so bright.
