Argentina national anthem shortened

THE first Argentinian anthem was composed as early as 1810, before it was adopted as the official song three years later following the Revolution.

Its lyrics were written by the Buenos Aires-born Vicente Lopez y Planes, whilst the music was composed by a Spaniard, Blas Parera.

There is a long, anti-Spain section in the middle of the piece which has been omitted since 1924 – and the whole piece is extremely long.

As a result, in the Olympics, rugby games and at the World Cup, only the instrumental introduction (which lasts 1 minute 6 seconds) is played.

Anthem Argentina

THE anthem is simply known as the Himno Nacional Argentino.

It had previous names that translated as the Marcha Patriotica (Patriotic March) or Cancion Patriotica Nacional (National Patriotic Song).

lyrics national anthem Argentina

Hear, mortals, the sacred cry:
“Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”
Hear the sound of broken chains
See noble equality enthroned.
Their most worthy throne have now opened
The United Provinces of the South.
And the free people of the world reply:
“To the great Argentine people, good health!”
“To the great Argentine people, good health!”
And the free ones of the world reply:
“To the great Argentine people, good health!”
And the free ones of the world reply:
“To the great Argentine people, good health!”

National Patriotic Song to National Anthem.

Originally, the song was known as the National Patriotic Song, and it was shortened to National Anthem. However, the 1848 edition composed the song Himno Nacional Argentino – a name that is still in use today.

problems with National Patriotic Song

Another problem that arose was the variety of songs sung. In 1860, a legal translation was launched. However, many reforms began in 1927, bringing with them many new problems.

This version was eventually rejected and the original version was restored and confirmed as the official national anthem in 1944. Prior to this, the song had been shortened to remove part of the song, leaving only the first and last words against the chorus.

Independent Argentina

The Argentine national anthem focuses on an independent body. Earlier, the longer version referred to Spanish-American liberation struggles and events in other parts of the world, but a 1900-year songbook shortened the song.

Conclusion

Today, this national anthem is performed during all official ceremonies. Residents are expected to stand and sing while playing. TV stations also play the national anthem before the end of the day’s broadcast, while the broadcasters play a song at midnight. Because it was adopted on May 11, this day has been designated as Song Day.
