‘When I started arranging and recording national anthems some 18 years ago, nobody expected the project would become so big and popular. In the meantime, it has been an important part of two Summer Olympics and numerous other sporting, cultural and social events. This is an extraordinary project and no other existing anthem collection comes close to its stature in terms of completeness, quality of research, or size of the orchestral forces used. Every time this album is updated, the reactions are overwhelming – from press articles and radio/TV shows all the way to special archbishops’ blessings. I hope this latest version, with its unprecedented number of anthems, will be no less appreciated.’

Peter Breiner, arranger/conductor

‘A mandatory purchase for the nationality/sovereignty anorak. Indispensable for bandmasters, state musicians, Mastermind contestants, Tovey experts and organisers of diplomatic events and international visits. Also any self-respecting major or regional library will want to have this on the shelves.’

While globalisation advances, all countries staunchly retain two unique features: their distinctive national flag and a bonding national anthem. The anthems reflect an enormous indigenous diversity, but relatively few are generally known by citizens of other nations, making any comprehensive compendium a source of endless interest and discovery. We invite you to take a musical tour of Naxos’ definitive set of national and regional anthems, from Algeria to Kuwait, Lapland to Zanzibar, and all stops in between. You’ll be delighted by the gems that are waiting to be discovered, and you can check out the flags in the process with our informative supporting booklets. Welcome to the Naxos boxed set of
THE COMPLETE NATIONAL ANTHEMS OF THE WORLD.

Listen to the following national anthems from the set:
