An arrangement of the national anthem of the Ukraine arranged for a female choir consisting of SSAA. A free MP3 is available with the pronunciation of the lyrics: The arrangement is dedicated to the Angelica Women's Chamber Choir.‘Shche ne vmerla Ukrainas’, the national anthem of Ukraine, has just one verse and one chorus – but it remains one of the world’s mightiest patriotic songs.It was formally adopted less than three decades ago, following the country’s independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.While formally known as the ‘State Anthem of Ukraine’, it also goes by its native title ‘Shche ne vmerla Ukrainy’, which translates into English as ‘Ukraine Has Not Yet Perished’.The rousing melody we hear today was officially accepted in 1992 by Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada.More than 10 years later, the official lyrics were set after then-president Leonid Kuchma proposed a law in 2003.He wanted priest and composer Mykhailo Verbytsky’s music to be the vehicle for Ukrainian poet’s Pavlo Chubynsky’s patriotic poem, ‘Šče ne vmerla Ukrajina’, with some adjustments to the first verse.Instead of the poet’s original line ‘Ukraine has not yet died, neither her glory, nor her freedom’, the anthem goes, ‘Ukraine’s glory has not yet died, nor her freedom’.Please declare all performances to your performing rights society, to enable writers to get royalties for their hard work!For more of my original music, great arrangements and all the national anthems of the world, check out my on-line stores: an anthem fast?
