Added to cart
The music to the "Ukrainian National Anthem" was written in 1864 by Mykhalio Verbytsky with lyrics by Pavlo Chubynsky. It is also known as "Shche Ne Vmerla Ukrany" which means "Ukraine has not yet perished." This arrangement for string orchestra uses the traditional harmonies of the anthem making it ideal to accompany singers. The skillful scoring sounds beautiful with younger performers, and is stunning with a professional ensemble. After a brief introduction, the anthem starts boldly and is then varied to feature different colors of the instruments with a tasteful use of open strings, divisi, and double stops. The flowing inner lines of the music provide interesting parts for everyone, and is a perfect addition to any concert.
