Letter From Italy, 1944 
Sung by Baritone: Chai-lun Yueh
Composed by: Sarah Meneely-Kyder
In 2001, Chai-lun has performed a very moving and challenging vocal piece: "The Letter from Italy, 1944". It is composed specifically for his deep and rich baritone voice by his colleague, Professor Sarah Meneely-Kyder, accompanied by The North/South String Quartet.  His magnificent singing was included on the CD Millennium Overture, produced by North/South Recordings, and it was nominated for a Grammy award in 2003. It is also featured on CPTV special program in 2015. This soundtrack could be found in most of the major music/book stores across the United States.
