The national anthem of the Ukraine arranged for Voice & Piano. An MP3 of the pronunciation is available free on"Shche ne vmerla Ukrainy i slava, i volia" / 'The glory and freedom of Ukraine has not yet perished'), also known by its official title of "State Anthem of Ukraine" (Державний Гімн України, Derzhavnyy Himn Ukrayiny) or by its shortened form "Shche ne vmerla Ukrayina" (Ще не вмерла Україна, lit. 'Ukraine has not yet perished'), is the national anthem of Ukraine. It is one of the state symbols of the country.The lyrics constitute a slightly modified version of the first stanza of a patriotic poem written in 1862 by the poet Pavlo Chubynsky, a prominent ethnographer from Kyiv. In 1863, Mykhailo Verbytsky, a western Ukrainian composer and Greek-Catholic priest, composed music to accompany Chubynsky's text. The first choral performance of the piece was at the Ukraine Theatre in Lviv, in 1864.In the first half of the 20th century, during unsuccessful attempts to gain independence and create a state from the territories of the Russian Empire, Poland, and Austria-Hungary, the song was the national anthem of the Ukrainian People's Republic, the West Ukrainian People's Republic, and Carpatho-Ukraine. A competition was held for a national anthem following Ukraine's secession from the Soviet Union, with one of the songs being "Za Ukrajinu" (English: "For Ukraine") by the Ukrainian writer and actor Mykola Voronyi. "Shche ne vmerla Ukrainy i slava, i volia" was officially adopted by Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada (parliament) on 15 January 1992. The official lyrics were adopted on 6 March 2003 by the Law on the Anthem of Ukraine (Закон про Гімн України).
