Classic of Music
The Classic of Music (Chinese: t 樂經, s 乐经, p Yuèjīng; w Yüeh-ching) was a Confucian classic text lost by the time of the Han Dynasty. It is sometimes referred to as the "Sixth Classic" and is thought to have been important in the traditional interpretations of the Book of Songs.
A few traces remain in other surviving works, including the Zuo Zhuan, the Rites of Zhou, and the Classic of Rites. The version preserved in "Chapter 19" of the Classic of Rites is much dilapidated.[clarification needed]
