Anniversary Theme Song

previouspausenext

「旧校新颜乐见成,培育新血精英。
莫问收成莫计名,崇基志励勉。……
物换星移运转成,人事兴替不惊。
莫论尊荣莫诉不平,齐共欢庆今宵。……」

The Chung Chi College 60th Anniversary Theme Song is the concerted effort of Prof. Yu Shiu-wah and Prof. Victor Chan, both music graduates of Chung Chi.


The song, to be sung in Cantonese, was composed in a singer-friendly hymnal mode for easy learning. This is no hard work for Professor Chan who is a prolific composer in opera, symphonic works, chamber music, instrumental and vocal solo and ensemble pieces, not to mention the weekly rearrangement and orchestration for congregational hymns. As the music transposes unnoticeably between five different keys, the theme of the song recurs, each time introducing a new mood. 


A seasoned scholar in Chinese music and Cantonese opera, Professor Yu did a great job as a novice lyricist. The seven stanzas, neatly rhymed with seamless articulation between Cantonese tones and musical pitches, proclaim the mission of Chung Chi, portray the College landmarks, present the community life and reaffirm the unity of staff and students’ and their confidence in embracing new challenges. 


Audio and video clips of the lyrics and scores, and different renditions of the anniversary theme song can be downloaded from www.cuhk.edu.hk/ccc/ cc60/eng/index_e.html.
