"A Portuguesa" - Portugal National anthem Vocal

submitted by Marvin's Underground Music Ondemand on 05/04/18 1

A Portuguesa (English: The Portuguese Hymn), Portuguese pronunciation: [ɐ puɾtuˈɣezɐ], is the national anthem of Portugal. It was composed by Alfredo Keil and written by Henrique Lopes de Mendonça during the resurgent nationalist movement ignited by the 1890 British ultimatum to Portugal concerning its African colonies. Adopted as the marching song of the failed republican rebellion of January 1891, the song was adopted as the national anthem of the Portuguese Republic in 1911, replacing O Hino da Carta (English: The Charter Anthem), the anthem of the deposed constitutional monarchy. Portugal National Anthem Lyrics Portugal A PORTUGUESA Hero'is do mar, nobre povo, Nac,a~o valente, imortal Levantai hoje de novo, O esplendor de Portugal Entre as brumas da memo'ria, O' pa'tria sente-se a voz Dos teus egre'gios avo's Que ha'-de guiar-te `a vito'ria. `As armas! `As armas! Sobre a terra e sobre o mar! `As armas! `As armas! Pela Pa'tria lutar! Contra os canho~es marchar, marchar! Desfralda a invicta bandeira `A luz viva do teu ce'u Brade a Europa `a terra inteira Portugal na~o pereceu! Beija o solo teu jucundo O oceano a rujir d'amor E o teu brac,o vencedor Deu mundos novos ao Mundo! [coro] Saudai o sol que desponta Sobre um ridente porvir; Seja o eco d'uma afronta O sinal de ressurgir. Raios d'essa aurora forte Sa~o como beijos de ma~e Que nos guardam, nos suste^m, Contra as inju'rias da sorte. English: English Translation: Heroes of the sea, noble race, Valiant and immortal nation, Now is the hour to raise up on high once more Portugal's splendour. From out of the mists of memory, Oh Homeland, we hear the voices Of your great forefathers That shall lead you on to victory! CHORUS To arms, to arms On land and sea! To arms, to arms To fight for our Homeland! To march against the enemy guns! Unfurl the unconquerable flag In the bright light of your sky! Cry out to all Europe and the whole world That Portugal has not perished. Your happy land is kissed By the Ocean that murmurs with love. And your conquering arm Has given new worlds to the world! CHORUS Salute the Sun that rises On a smiling future: Let the echo of an insult be The signal for our revival. The rays of that powerful dawn Are like a mother's kisses That protect us and support us Against the insults of fate. CHORUS
