World music

An arrangement of the national anthem of Cape Verde arranged for classical Brass Quintet.

From independence in 1975 to 1996, Cabo Verde (known until late 2013 as Cape Verde) shared the same anthem as Guinea-Bissau, to reflect a proposed merger of these two Portuguese speaking nations. However, when that failed to materialize, Cabo Verde change her flag and anthem to have national symbols more unique to their own nation.

"Cântico da Liberdade (in English: Song of Freedom) is the national anthem of Cape Verde. It was made official in 1996, before that the national anthem was the same as that of Guinea-Bissau. The music was composed by Adalberto Higino Tavares Silva, and the lyrics written by Amílcar Spencer Lopes.

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
