Denmarkhas two national anthems. The first, Der er et yndigt land (There is a lovelyland) is the civil national anthem and the most frequently performed. When itwas first published in 1819, the anthem had twelve verses but today it has beensignificantly shortened. The dotted rhythm in measure 15 (in Parts 1 and 2) issometimes played as two equal eighth notes (quavers). The second anthem, KongChristian stod ved højen mast (King Christian stood by the lofty mast) hasequal status but is mainly used for royal and military occasions. At suchtimes, it is either performed alone or the two anthems are played together.Known simply as Kong Christian it is traditionally sung in Denmark immediatelyafter midnight every New Year's Eve. The audio sample contains the first, morepopular anthem.

Thesequick and easy national anthem arrangements are essential for traveling musicians,bands, instrumental groups and both amateur and professional ensembles. You canplay it with any virtually any combination of instruments: symphonic band,clarinet choir, brass ensemble, brass band, solos, duets and trios - almostanything!

Thisarrangement is in six independent parts each transposed into a variety of keys.For the most satisfying sound you’ll need to get a good balance between eachpart possibly with an emphasis on the melodic line. If you have a non-standardensemble, you can "pick 'n' mix" as required. The piano reduction can"fill" missing parts or can be used as the basis for an accompaniment.Note that this anthem is virtually identical to the anthem of Finland. There isa minor difference in part of the melody and the repeat structure is different.

Thisarrangement consists of a four-page score with seven instrumental staves andthree percussion staves. The following parts are printed on separate pages. Thescore and all the parts are contained in the same pdf file.

Part1 in B flat (clarinet, trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, soprano sax); Part 1 in C (glockenspiel,violin); Part 1 in E flat (alto sax, E flat clarinet); Part 1a in C (octave aboveconcert for flute, piccolo, oboe, violin) and Part 1a in E flat (E flat cornet inbrass band).
