China has a tradition of poetic education, and Chant Verse is a significant historical link sustaining Chinese ritual civilization. Reciting the Book of Songs and Historical Records with intonation and expression is the obligation of musical officers in the Chun Guan, which is one of the articles of Zhou Li. Much more can be said about the social formation and function of Chant Verse in the Zhou Dynasty based on its official position, like identifying and tracing the obligation and studying the cultural function of musical officers, who are usually blind. Meanwhile, the comparisons between the great masters of Six Teaching Poetry and the musical officers, who educate people in musical language, can also be made and analyzed. This research will contribute to our understanding of Chant Verse: its source, its early cultural origin, its social patterns, and its historical value.
