From Shari, from where the Mungo meanders From along the banks of lowly Boumba Stream, Muster thy sons in union close around thee, Mighty as the Buea Mountain be their team. Instill in them the love of gentle ways. French Lyrics: Aldolphe-Basile Routhier Music: Attributed to Calixa Lavallee The occasion was the "Congres national des Canadiens-Fran9ais" in , which was being held at the same time as the St.
Jean-Baptiste Day celebrations. There had been some thought of holding a competition for a national hymn to have its first performance on St. Jean-Baptiste Day, 24 June, but by January the committee in charge decided there was not enough time, so the lieutenant governor of Quebec, the Honorable Theodore Robitaille, commissioned Judge Routhier to write a hymn and Lavallee to compose the tune. Lavallee made a number of drafts before the tune was greeted with enthusiasm by his musical friends. It is said that in the excitement of success Lavallee rushed to show his music to the Lieutenant Governor without even stopping to sign the manuscript.
The first performance took place on 24 June at a banquet in the "Pavilion des Patineurs" in Quebec City as the climax of a "Mosai'que sur des airs populaires canadiens" arranged by Joseph Vezina, a prominent composer and bandmaster. Although this first performance of "O Canada" with Routhier's French words was well received on the evening, it does not seem to have made a lasting impression at that time.
Arthur Lavigne, a Quebec musician and music dealer, published it without copyright although there was no rush to reprint. Lavallee's obit in does not mention it among his accomplishments, nor does a biography of Judge Routhier published in French Canada is represented in the edition of the University of Toronto song book by "Vive la canadienne," "A la claire fontaine," and "Un canadien errant.
Five years later, Whaley and Royce in Toronto published the music with the French text and a translation into English made by Dr. Thomas Bedford Richardson, a Toronto doctor. The Mendelssohn Choir used the Richardson lyrics in one of their performances about this time and Judge Routhier, and the French press complimented the author. In Collier's Weekly inaugurated its Canadian edition with a competition for an English text to Lavallee's music. It was won by Mercy E. Powell McCulloch, but her version did not take. Since then many English versions have been written for "O Canada. So did Augustus Bridle, a Toronto critic.
Some were written for the tercentenary of Quebec City. One version became popular in British Columbia. However, the version that gained the widest currency was made in by Robert Stanley Weir, a lawyer and at the time Recorder of the City of Montreal. This is the version that was published in an official form for the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation in , and has since been generally accepted in English-speaking Canada. Many musicians have made arrangements of "O Canada" but there appears to be a scarcity of recordings suitable for various purposes.
In , the association of Canadian Clubs passed a unanimous resolution recommending the Weir version as suitable for use at club meetings. Since then the Canadian Authors Association has endorsed it and in the Native Sons of Canada found in favor of it. In , an official version of "O Canada" was authorized for singing in Canadian schools and for use at public functions. On 27 July , the prime minister, William Lyon Mackenzie King, was asked if he did not think this an appropriate time for proclaiming a national anthem.
He replied that "There are times and seasons for all things and this time of war when there are other more important questions with which parliament has to deal, we might well continue to follow what has become the custom in Canada in recent years of regarding 'God Save the King Queen ' and 'O Canada' each as national anthems and entitled to similar recognition. Some years later, his successor as prime minister, Louis St-Laurent, made a similar statement. In , a government resolution authorized the formation of a special joint committee to consider the status of "God Save the Queen" and "O Canada.
Pearson placed a notice of motion on the order paper "that the government be authorized to take such steps as may be necessary to provide that 'O Canada' shall be the National Anthem of Canada while 'God Save the Queen' shall be the Royal Anthem of Canada. On 15 March of the following year, the special joint committee "unanimously recommends that the government be authorized to adopt forthwith the music for 'O Canada' composed by Lavallee as the music of the National Anthem of Canada with the following notation added to the sheet music: With dignity, not too slowly.
This provision would also include that no other person shall be entitled to copyright in the music or any arrangements or adaptations thereof. It discarded an otherwise acceptable bilingual version as being difficult for other ethnic groups in Canada to accept. It suggested keeping the first verse of the original French version and using the first verse of the Weir English version with minor changesthat is replacing two of the "Stand on guard" phrases with "From far and wide" and "God keep our land.
They were. Since Judge Weir died in , the Weir version would not come into public domain until There was some doubt that the Weir family had legal grounds for objection since Thompson apparently held copyright on both music and English words. However the committee preferred to settle the matter amicably if at all possible. The Government acquired the rights from G. Thompson in The recommendations of the study in Parliament are incorporated in the bill, which did not receive further study in Parliament and died on the order paper.
The same legislation was reintroduced by Mr. Pelletier's successors at further sessions of Parliament; no action was ever taken. On 18 June , Pelletier's successor Francis Fox presented a bill, similar to previously presented bills on "O Canada," fulfilling a promise made earlier in the House that "O Canada" be proclaimed as Canada's national anthem as soon as possible in this year of the centenary of the first rendition.
The bill was unanimously accepted by the House of Commons and the Senate on June 27; royal assent was given the same day. A public ceremony was held at noon on Parliament Hill in front of thousands of Canadians. Descendants of Weir and Routhier were on the official platform, as well as Jean-Pierre Cote, the successor of Robitaille.
French Words O Canada, terre de nos ai'eux, Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux. Car ton bras sait porter 1'epee, II sait porter la croix. Ton histoire est une epopee Des plus brillants exploits. Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The true north strong and free! From far and wide, O Canada! We stand on guard for thee. God keep our land glorious and free! O Canada! We stand on guard for thee repeat. Historical Background This anthem was adopted to replace the previous one, which had been the same as that of Guinea-Bissau, after Cape Verde officially renounced its once cherished goal of unification with Guinea-Bissau.

Sentinela de mares e ventos perseverante entre estrelas e o Atlantico entoa o cantico da Liberdade. Music: Herbert Pepper b. Historical Background The music to this anthem was written in by French ethnomusicologist Herbert Pepper, who composed numerous works of original African music.
Reprends ton droit au respect, a la vie! Longtemps soumis, longtemps brime par tous. Mais de ce jour brisant la tyrannic. Dans le travail, Fordre et la dignite Tu reconquiers ton droit, ton unite Et pour franchir cette etape nouvelle, De nos ancetres la voix nous appelle. Central Africa, cradle of the Bantu!

And to take this new step The voice of our ancestors calls us. In order and dignity, In the respect for rights and in unity. Breaking poverty and tyranny. Holding high the flag of the fatherland. Music: Paul Villard Historical Background The words of this song were written by Louis Gidroi and a group of students in to the music of Paul Villard. Tu as conquis ta terre et ton droit; Ta liberte naitra de ton courage. Leve tes yeux. You have conquered the soil and won your rights; Your freedom will be born of your courage. Lift up your eyes, the future is yours. Chad May your neighbors admire your children.
Joyful, peaceful, advance as you sing, Faithful to your fathers who are watching you. Que tes voisons admirent tes enfants. Joyeux, pacifique, avance en chantant, Fidele a tes anciens qui te regardent. Music: Ramon Carnicer Historians believe that the song was initially performed either during the celebrations of September or in the Domingo Arteaga Theatre on 20 August The second anthem was composed, by petition, by Ramon Carnicer, a Spanish songwriter exiled in England at the time because of his liberal beliefs The music made its debut at the Arteaga Theatre on 23 December in a concert of the philharmonic society.
Years later, in , the Chilean Government ordered the young poet Eusebio Lillo to write a new text to Carnicer's words, thus replacing the original lyrics of de Vera y Pintado, which contained violent references against Spain. Today, the chorus and fifth verse of Lillo's poem make up the official national anthem of Chile. Majestic is the snow-covered mountain That was given to you by the Lord as a bastion, repeat And the sea that tranquilly washes your shore Promises future splendor for you.
Majestuosa es la blanca montana Que te dio por baluarte el Senor repeat Y ese mar que tranquilo te bana, Te promete future esplendor. Population est : 1,,, Capital: Beijing pop. March of the Volunteers Lyrics: Tian Han Music: Nie Er Historical Background1 The words to the national anthem were written by Tian Han, and its music was set by Nie Er in Originally known as the "March of the Volunteers," it was the theme song of Sons and Daughters in Times of Turmoil, a film that depicted how Chinese intellectuals marched bravely to the front in the War of Resistance against Japan during World War II.
Sonorous, militant, and inspiring, the song describes the wrath of the Chinese people against imperialist aggression and their determination to protect their motherland against foreign invaders. The song immediately swept the nation, and in it was submitted as a candidate for the national anthem. Many people liked the idea, and it was adopted on 27 September of that year on a provisional basis However, it was not until thirty-three years later that this status changed, in , the "March of the Volunteers" was officially named the national anthem by the National People's Congress.

Music: Cheng Maoyun Historical Background1 The words of this national anthem were first delivered as an exhortation at the opening ceremony of the Whampoa Military Academy in Guangzhou on 16 June by Dr. Sun Yat-sen, founder of the Republic of China. The Three People's Principles in his speech referred to his political philosophy of people's government, people's rights, and people's livelihood.
This exhortation was designated as the Kuomintang's KMT party song in , after which the KMT then publicly solicited contributions for a tune to fit the words The melody submitted by Cheng Maoyun was the undisputed winner out of contenders. In the late s and early s, the ministry of education held two separate competitions for lyrics for a national anthem, using the KMT party song in the meantime as a temporary anthem However, none of the entries reviewed were deemed appropnate, so Sun's composition was finally adopted as the official national anthem of the Republic of China in The piece was honored as the world's best national anthem at the Berlin Olympics In Chinese Words Transliteration San Min Zhuyi, wu dang suo zong, Yijian minguo, yijin datong, Zier duo shi, wei min qianfeng, Suyefeixie, zhuyi shi cong, Shi qin shi yong, bi xin bi zhong, Yi xin yi de, guanche shizhong!

Music: Oreste Sindici Driven by love for his country and theatrical music, he decided to push for the creation of a national anthem. He requested his close friend, the Italian opera teacher Oreste Sindici, to compose the music to an inspirational poem by then-President Rafael Nunez commemorating the city of Cartagena. Although reluctant at first, Sindici was at last persuaded through the joint efforts of his wife and Torres.
On 11 November , the song was sung for the first time in public at an improvised music hall in the old building of the public school where Sindici taught. The following month, on 6 December, the first official appearance was made in front of the Palace of San Carlos. In , the song was adopted as the national anthem by the Colombian Congress. Jose Rozo Contreras, Director of the National Band, later made an official transcription of the anthem in En surcos de dolores jEl bien germina ya!

Music: Manuel Maria Gutierrez Historical Background1 In , the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom accredited, for the first time, their diplomatic representatives in Costa Rica. President Juan Rafael Mora wanted to host a welcome ceremony for the two missions. Since Costa Rica did not have a national anthem at that time, Mora requested Manuel Maria Gutierrez, Director of the Costa Rican National Army Orchestra, to compose the music of the national anthem to be performed at the welcome ceremony The music of the national anthem was first played at the presidential palace Casa de Gobierno on 11 June at midnight.
The music does not have a military connotation since it was composed to welcome two diplomatic missions Instead, it evokes an act of union, solidarity, and peaceful agreements among nations. It conveys a patriotic feeling through which the country shows its identity and peaceful nature. In there was a public contest for all Costa Rican citizens who wanted to write the national anthem. Jose Maria Zeledon Brenes won that contest. The anthem was sung and played for the first time on 15 September In those words and music became the official national anthem.
The words address the "campesinos"farm workersof the early twentieth century who laid the foundation of Costa Rica's democracy and development. They lived in the country-side, cultivated crops, raised horses and cattle. The greatness of "campesmos" was not based on their possessions but on the way they handled daily matters and conducted themselves. The blue sky and the fields were The hopes and dreams of Costa Rican people of that time depended on not only the future, strengthened by the efforts and success of the present, but also on the preservation of the traditions passed through generations.

And their faces are ruddy with hard work In the fields beneath the life giving sun Though your sons are but farm workers, their labors eternal Esteem, renown, and honor have won.

Del clarin escuchad el sonido, jA las armas valientes corred! Hear the clarion call, Hasten, brave ones, to battle!

English Translation Arise with strength; for we have raised our flag, The flag which has cost us dear With extremes of thirst and pain. Our flag, whose colors are the everlasting green of the earth, The blue of the sky, and white, the color of peace; And the center the red star of blood. Oh flag of ours, what a glorious sight! Music: Lemuel McPherson Christian b. Historical Background This song was adopted when Dominica achieved statehood status within the British Commonwealth in and retained upon independence in Words 1 2 3. Isle of beauty, isle of splendor, Isle to all so sweet and fair, All must surely gaze in wonder At thy gifts so rich and rare.
Rivers, valleys, hills and mountains, All these gifts we do extol. Healthy land, so like all fountains, Giving cheer that warms the soul. Dominica, God hath blest thee With a clime benign and bright, Pastures green and flowers of beauty Filling all with pure delight, And a people strong and healthy, Full of godly, rev'rent fear.
May we ever seek to praise Thee For these gifts so rich and rare. Come ye forward, sons and daughters Of this gem beyond compare. Strive for honor, sons and daughters, Do the right, be firm, be fair. Toil with hearts and hands and voices. We must prosper! Music: Jose Reyes Historical Background The original idea for this song came from Jose Reyes, who was inspired by a copy of the Argentine national anthem published in the Parisian magazine The American.
Reyes believed that his country should also have its own national song. So, in , he invited his friend Emilio Prud'homme to write the lines while composing the music himself. The next day, the song was played during a celebration of the national press at the Logia Esperanza. It was well received by the public and, gradually, its fame spread. In , the periodical El Telefono published a revised edition of Prud'homme's verses, made by the author himself, since the first version was written when he was an inexperienced 27 year old. Acting on a motion by deputy Rafael Garcia Martinez, the National Congress adopted a resolution on 7 June to give the song official status.
However, President Ulises Heureaux refused to sign it into law, probably because of Prud'homme's disagreement with his dictatorial government. It was not until 30 May that the president of the Dominican Republic, Rafael Leonidas Trujillo Molina, by means of Law number , adopted officially this song as the national anthem.

Spanish Words First Two Verses of Six 1 Quisqueyanos valientes, alcemos Nuestro canto con viva emocion, Y del mundo a la faz ostentemos Nuestro invicto, glorioso pendon. A la guerra a morir se lanzo, Cuando en belico reto de muerte Sus cadenas de esclavo rompio. Under a warlike menace of death, You broke your chains of slavery. Ningun pueblo ser libre merece Si es esclavo. Mas Quisqueya la indomita y brava Siempre altiva la frente alzara; Que si fuere mil veces esclava Otras tantas ser libre sabra. No country deserves to be free If it is an indolent and servile slave.
If the call does not grow loud within it, Tempered by a virile heroism. But the brave and indomitable Quisqueya Will always hold its head high, For if it were a thousand times enslaved, It would a thousand times regain freedom. Music: Antonio Neumane Historical Background The text of the national anthem is a poem that was written by the Ecuadorian writer and essayist Juan Leon Mera in It was set to music by Antonio Neumane the following year.
The poem itself consists of seven verses. In highly formal settings, the second and third verses are played, with the second verse repeated at the end. In informal settings, only the second verse is used. Y a tu pecho. A thousand times, hail! Glory unto thee! With peace and joy, Your breast swells, and thy glorious face Shines brighter than the sun. Los primeros los hijos del suelo Que el soberbio; el Pichincha decora Te aclamaron por siempre senora Y vertieron su sangre por ti. Dios miro y acepto el holocausto, Y esa sangre fue germen fecundo De otros heroes; que atonito el mundo Vio en tu torno a millares surgir.
The first children of this land, Which mantles supreme, Pichincha As their motherland, they forever acclaimed And shed their blood for thee. God saw, and accepted this holocaust, And their blood was the fertile seed For other heroes who the astonished world, Would see, by the thousands rally unto thee. De estos heroes al brazo de hierro Nada tuvo invencible la tierra, Y del valle a la altisima sierra Se escuchaba el fragor de la lid; Tras la lid la victoria volaba.
Libertad tras el triunfo venia. Y al Icon destrozado se oia, De impotencia y despecho rugir. For these steel armed heroes Nothing in the land was invincible And from the valley to the high Sierra Could the clamor of the struggle be heard; After the struggle, victory came flying. And freedom followed on victory's heel. And the toppled lion could be heard, As it roared in impotence and vanity.
Historical Background1 The words and music to the national anthem of Egypt were written by Sayed Darwish, one of the pioneers of Arabic music and a leader of the modern Egyptian renaissance at the turn of the previous century. As a vanguard of innovation, he liberated music from its obsolete forms. During his lifetime, Darwish wrote many patriotic songs and maintained close ties with early leaders of the national movement for independence in the Middle East, like Saad Zaghloul and Mustapha Kamel Artaturk.
In fact, the words of Egypt's national anthem were derived from one of Kamel's most famous speeches. Gracious is thy Nile to humanity. My homeland, my homeland, my hallowed land, Only to you, is my due hearty love at command. Music: Juan Aberie Historical Background The music to this anthem was composed by Juan Aberie, an Italian songwriter who came to El Salvador during the late nineteenth century to direct an orchestral group.

Of peace enjoyed in perfect happiness, El Salvador has always nobly dreamed. To achieve this has been her eternal proposition, To keep it, her greatest glory. With inviolable faith, she eagerly follows The way of progress In order to fulfill her high destiny And achieve a happy future. Libertad es su dogma, es su guia, Que mil veces logro defender; Y otras tantas de audaz Urania Rechazar el odioso poder.
Dolorosa y sangrienta es su historia, Pero excelsa y brillante a la vez; Manantial de legitima gloria, Gran leccion de espartana altivez. No desmaya en su innata bravura, En cada hombre hay un heroe inmortal Que sabra mantenerse a la altura De su antiguo valor proverbial.
Valor proverbial, valor proverbial. Freedom is her dogma and her guide; A thousand times she has defended it, And as many times has she repelled The hateful power of atrocious tyranny. Her history has been bloody and sad, Yet at the same time sublime and brilliant, A source of legitimate glory And a great lesson in Spartan pride. Her innate bravery shall not waver: In every man there is an immortal hero Who knows how to maintain the level Of the proverbial valor of old.
Valor of old, valor of old. Respetar los derechos extranos Apoyarse en la recta razon Es para ella, sin torpes amanos Su invariable, mas firme ambition. Y en seguir esta linea se aferra Dedicando su esfuerzo tenaz, En hacer cruda guerra a la guerra: Su ventura se encuentra en la paz. En la paz, en la paz. To respect the rights of others And base her actions on right and justice Is for her, without infamous intrigue, The constant and most firm ambition.
And in following this line she persists, Dedicating her tenacious efforts In giving hard battle for battle; Her happiness is found in peace In peace, in peace. Spanish Words Caminemos pisando las sendas De nuestra inmensa felicidad. En fraternidad. Tras dos siglos de estar sometidos, Bajo la domination colonial, En fraterna union, sin discriminar, jCantemos Libertad! Y defendamos nuestra Libertad. Cantemos siempre, Libre Guinea, Y conservemos siempre la unidad. English Translation Let us tread the paths Of our great happiness.
In brotherhood, undivided. Let us sing for freedom! Behind us are two centuries Of colonial domination. In brotherly unity, without discrimination. Let us shout: Long live Guinea!

Whose blessings ease my toil. With my last breath my thanks to thee.
For true to death I'll ever be, O worthy, most beloved and fine, Thou, dearest country mine! Su iile Jumal valvaku, mu armas isamaa!
