A multimedia publication featuring the intangible cultural heritage-Zhihua Temple's Classical Music of Beijing has been jointly launched on Dec 2 by the Chinese National Academy of Arts and the Culture and Art Press.

Renowned as a "living fossil" of ancient Chinese music, Zhihua Temple music is a repertoire of both music and religious rituals passed down for more than 500 years. It is a combination of imperial court music, Buddhist music and folk tunes, most of which are songs celebrating Buddhist events.
