The classic Sibelius tune Finlandia has become the unofficial national anthem of Finland. This jazz arrangement is a new twist on a classic,prompted by a kid in one of my ensembles saying, why don't you do a jazzversion of Finlandia - so I did. The tune comes out well, with the same senseof pride mixed with poignancy. It's suitable for intermediate players andabove. I can do bespoke arrangements for other combinations on request.

Finlandia did not originally have words. Finnish lyrics were added,written by V A Koskenniemi. They were accepted by Sibelius as the officiallibretto in 1942.
The English words are from a hymn “We Would Be One” writtenfor the Unitarian Universalists.This arrangement has both Finnish and English words.
