Surinamese National Anthem for Brass Quintet (MFAO World National Anthem Series)
An arrangement of the national anthem of Suriname for Brass Quintet.
The anthem has its beginnings in a Sunday School song written in 1893 by Cornelis Atses Hoekstra called “Suriname’s Trotsche Stroomen” (Suriname’s Proud Streams). The song was set to a piece of music by Johannes Corstianus de Puy written in 1876. In 1959, after self-government was granted, the government asked the poet Henry de Ziel (whose pen name was Trefossa) to write lyrics for the anthem in the language popularly spoken in Suriname, Sranan Tongo. He also revised Hoekstra’s lyrics of the second verse to remove the “negative tones” in some lines. Originally the anthem was song with de Ziel’s verse first, but now it is perfomed with Hoekstra’s Dutch verse first and de Ziel’s Sranan lyrics as the second verse.
