Overview

National Anthems, or National Songs, are typically musical compositions that celebrate a Nation's identity. They exist in all shapes and sizes; long, short and multi-sectional. They can be; lyrical, march-like, heroic and plaintiff. They can celebrate; landscape, history, people and events.

Sometimes they 'emerge' through conventional use, and sometimes they are specifically commissioned. In short, they can be a window into the character of a people, their leaders and their history.

In this collection we have gathered sixty National Anthems from around the world carefully arranging them for Voice and Piano. Each piano accompaniment is playable by a competent pianist, and there are additional optional harmonies added to the vocal part for choral use if desired. In every country throughout the year there is always a reason to celebrate and this volume can be used to explore those celebrations as part of a wider exploration of the world, and, to this end we have included interesting facts and figures, a translation of the text, and the phonetic sounds for the calligraphic languages so every anthem can be easily
ung and understood. Ideal for use in the classroom or by choirs, and would make a great theme for a concert.
