National Anthems


Recommended Posts

Well, the Star Spangled Banner is a heavily re-worked British tavern song called "To Anacreon in Heaven". When you borrow, you takes what you can get. It actually works better than one would expect, but the range makes it tough for an anthem - most folks can't cover it very well. We might have been better off with a real composer writing it, but its too late now.

I have sideline making mobile phone ringtones and recently did most of the worlds national anthems. To my surprise they were all very similar. Even Arabic and Asian countries have the same old military sounding dirge! Also, if the MCPS database is correct, there were two composers who did loads of the world's anthems (can't remember their names offhand).
