This piece, written by Steve Barnes, is a surprise package that sounds distinctly of another era, somewhat redolent of the renaissance. His quizzical title refers to a menu item he came across whilst dining in a provincial Chinese restaurant. Ever the collector of humorous anecdotes, this one inevitably became a song title. The tune opens with two jaw harps in call-response mode, before the entry of guitar and tarota (a Catalan double-reed shawm) each playing the melody. Kristiina’s gorgeous vocal features a poem, again written by her mother, Lea Tabur. The subsequent solo is played by Mark on tarota and at the end, the melody is reprised on soprano sax.
