The regional anthem of The Azores arranged for String Orchestra. The Azores are an autonomous province of Portugal, and also have their own local, unofficial anthem. The original song was composed by Joaquim Lima during the 1890s when the autonomy movement was growing. Originally without lyrics (yet several unofficial lyrics were penned to promote autonomy), the Azorean government asked Azorean poetess Natália de Oliveira Correia to compose official lyrics for the anthem. The government also adopted Teófilo Frazão’s arrangement of the original melody as the official version of the anthem.
