5.0 out of 5 stars Reference source 8 Dec 2012
By mab
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a reference source for a variety of anthems. The LTO play beautifully. Not the sort of CD to play everyday but always there when referral is required.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, but not perfect 3 Jan 1999
By "tmcrpar" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When the acclaimed Austrian wind band Swarovski Musik Wattens attempted a national anthem set, I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. What I got was an impressive collection of national anthems performed with reverence and style, with some magnificent arrangements, though a little short on patriotic zeal. Some arrangements were stirring - UAE, Armenia, Egypt (magnificent), Brazil (this one's always terrific, but SMW deserves credit), Bulgaria, Ecuador (a pleasant surprise), Britain (the universal standard), Iraq, Italy (despite a fundamental melodic error), Cameroon, Malta, Mongolia (the best track), Austria (understandably), Peru (highly musically impressive), Romania, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia (powerful), Spain, South Africa (glorious in the repeat), Thailand (majestic), Venezuela, and Zimbabwe. However, some, sadly, came up short - I was not impressed by a stagnant Norway, a plastic Philippines, a plodding Poland, an almost funerary Portugal, and badly arranged renditions of Slovenia, Oman, Syria, and Turkey. Algeria had its moments, but the beginning was painfully dissonant. Greece was torn apart by a strange rhythmic background, while Ireland and Iran were simply too slow and Germany was thoroughly mediocre. However, in the often-inconsistent anthem world, this two-disc set is a beacon among flickering candles for its masterful combination of patriotism, emotion, and musical genius. If you buy one national anthem set this year, make it this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nartional Anthems incomplete 9 Sep 2000
By Anne Brazil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
National Anthems of the World includes only 16 anthems, for the most part, European. At least USA, Israel, Canada,and Japan are included. For my purposes, it would have been nice to at least have the anthem of Russia as I am planning to use this in my music classroom during the Olympics.
The second, and in some cases third, verses would have made sense had the recording included lyrics. The instrumentation sounds unusually similar from one anthem to the next. The Anthem of Wales is a refreshing change with its oboe solo, harp, strings, and maybe even a cello.
The London Theatre Orchestra must have been on vacation at the time, as the orchestrations are thin. Strong on the brass and percussion and very light on the woodwinds and strings.
All in all, I find this CD strongly mediocre!

2.0 out of 5 stars Omits China and India 9 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I haven't purchased this set, but I did notice two surprising omissions in the lists above: China and India. I have no idea why a 2-CD set covering 73 countries would choose to omit the two most populous countries of the world (which together comprise one-third of the world's population), but it was one reason I decided to go with another anthem compilation.
