Anthem MIDI FIle
The "Swiss Psalm" is the national anthem of Switzerland.
Its history dates back to 1841, when the anthem was composed by Alberich Zwyssig (1808-1854). Since then it has been frequently sung on patriotic events. The Federal Council declined however on numerous occasions to accept the psalm as the official anthem. This was because they wanted the people to decide what they liked as the national song.
From 1961, it provisionally replaced "Rufst Du mein Vaterland" ("When you call, my fatherland"; in French: "O Monts indﾃｩpendants"; in Italian: "Ci chiami o patria"; in Romansh: "E clomas, tger paeis"; in German commonly called "Heil dir, Helvetia") the anthem by Johann Rudolf Wyss (1743-1818) to the melody of "God Save the Queen".
Finally on April 1, 1981 it was declared the official Swiss national anthem (photo: the Matterhorn in canton Valais /source: Wikipedia).
