-- Anthem --

What "genre" do we assign to "The Star Spangled Banner," "God Save the Queen," "Oh Canada," "Advance Australia Fair,"

"The Marsellaise," and so forth?   This tune was explicitly intended as a National Anthem for a fictitious or perhaps as-yet

unfledged nation.    It's a study of the characteristics of national anthems. Its tempo is classic slow 2/4 march, its instrumentation 

is string orchestra and a lead voice, in this case a flute.

 Key: A     Time signature: 4/4      Tempo: 90     Length: 96 measures      Time: 4 minutes, 19 seconds

Instruments:    String Ensemble, Harpsichord, Rhodes Piano, and Flute
