"Ukraine is not yet dead" proclaims the Ukrainian national anthem. It first saw life as a poem written in 1862 by Pavlo Chubynsky. A year later Chubynsky's poem was set to music by Ukrainian composer and Catholic priest Mykhailo Verbytsky. It bespeaks the mix of hope and desperation felt through centuries by Ukrainians in their struggle to rule their own land. Originally sung as a hymn, both melody and lyrics share similarities with Polish, Serbian and Israeli anthems. Adopted as the national anthem after the Bolshevic Revolution, there was much discussion over the lyrics when the country's second independence was declared in 1991. After years of discussion, modest changes were made. Instead of opening with the phrase, "Ukraine has not yet perished, nor has her glory or freedom," it now reads, "Ukraine's glory and freedom which haven't perished." Whittled down to one verse with a refrain, the anthem concentrates on the ideas of vanquishing the enemies of the country and the breath of freedom.

This arrangement is for a standard brass quintet.
