Score of the Soviet hymn
Music by Alexander Alexandrov, lyrics by Sergei Mikhalkov.
The famous conductor Sir Henry Wood said about the hymn, 'It's a wonderful, majestic hymn – the hymn of a great nation with simple, direct and stirring music.' The music critic of the Daily Express called the hymn a 'triumphal work with the tempo of a victory march and a moving theme'. The Daily Express published the hymn's score."
