National Anthems of the World
M. J. Bristow
Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2006 - Music - 629 pages
A major revision of the essential guide to national anthems. With both the original and translated words plus music for 198 anthems, this invaluable guide includes countries from Armenia to Zimbabwe. All the latest changes are incorporated: the anthem of the new state of Timor-Leste, formerly East Timor, which became independent in 2002, and replacement anthems for Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Iraq, Mozambique, Rwanda, and Somalia. And where the country’s language is not written in Roman script, the lyrics are transliterated phonetically.
