Thread Name: Chord Req: National Anthem of the Soviet Union
Subject: RE: Chord Req: National Anthem of the Soviet Union
Here's the site where I found the "Russian" National Anthem, properly ponderous. BUT this is listed as the USSR national anthem. Before the revolution Imperial Russia used another tune, which an be heard towards the very end of the 1812 Overture, as, I believe, this music was composed to celebrate a French victory over the Russians. Hard to imagine the French beating anyone, these days where they simply quake in appeasement at any slight, unless it is hords of scraming Muslims, irate because two of their kids died when they ventured into an electrical sub station where they had no business, and electrocuted themselves, while evading the gendarmes.
