Paraguay National anthem Vocal

Paraguayos, República o Muerte is the national anthem of Paraguay. The lyrics were written by Francisco Acuña de Figueroa (who also wrote Orientales, la Patria o la tumba, the national anthem of Uruguay) under the presidency of Carlos Antonio López, who at the time delegated Bernardo Jovellanos and Anastasio González to ask Figueroa to write the anthem (Jovellanos and González were commissioners of the Paraguayan government in Uruguay). The anthem was officially finished by Figueroa on May 20, 1846. It still remains unclear who was responsible for the music. Some sources claim that Frenchman Francisco de Dupuis was the composer, while others cite Francisco Acuña de Figueroa as the composer. Other sources claim that the music was composed by Francisco José Debali, repeating the team of the Uruguayan national anthem. What it is known for sure is that in 1933, the Paraguayan composer Remberto Giménez re-arranged and developed the final version of the anthem. Paraguay National Anthem Lyrics Paraguay Original Spanish Words A los pueblos de América infausto, Tres centurias un cetro oprimió, Más un día soberbia surgiendo, Basta!..., dijo y el cetro rompió. Nuestros padres lidiando grandiosos, Ilustraron su gloria marcial; Y trozada la augusta diadema, Enalzaron el gorro triunfal! (repeat previous two lines) CHORUS Paraguayos, República o muerte! Nuestro brío nos dió libertad; Ni opresores, ni siervos, alientan, Donde reinan unión, e igualdad. (repeat previous two lines) Unión, e igualdad. (repeat) English Translation: For three centuries a reign oppressed The unhappy peoples of America, But one day, their anger aroused, they said: "An end to this!" and broke the reign. Our forefathers, fighting magnificently, Displayed their immortal glory, And when the august diadem was shattered, They raised the triumphal cap of liberty. (repeat previous two lines) CHORUS Paraguayans, Republic or death! It was our strength that gave us our final liberty. Neither tyrants nor slaves can continue, Where unity and equality reign, (repeat previous two lines) Where unity and equality reign. (repeat)
