The oldest collection of Chinese poetry, more than three hundred songs, odes and hymns. Tr. Legge (en) and Granet (fr, incomplete).
There are the bird musicians ; there are the blind musicians ;
In the court of [the temple of] Zhou.
There are [the music frames] with their face-boards and posts,
The high toothed-edge [of the former], and the feathers stuck [in the latter] ;
With the drums, large and small, suspended from them ;
And the hand-drums and sounding-stones, the instrument to give the signal for commencing, and the stopper.
