I think, it's the arrangement of Prof. Lucio which is being used in Ayala Cinema's during LFS.

I got this from email:


It must be remembered that that 'Himno Nacional Filipino' was forbidden to be played during the American occupation; even the Philippine was also not allowed to fly our VERY own skies! Such BAN happened immediately after the defeat of the Spanish Armada in the decisive battle of Manila Bay. (QUOTE_Saiaopinoi)

well,it's a shame that there are still some of us who doesnt know our national anthem. forgot some lyrics? forgivable. but worst, they don't even know what the title is. Hmmmmmm....

During American Era:

Land of the morning,
Child of the sun returning,
With fervor burning
Thee do our souls adore.

Land dear and holy,
Cradle of noble heroes.
Ne'er shall invaders
Trample thy sacred shore.

Ever within thy skies and through thy clouds,
And oe'r thy hills and sea,
Do we behold the radiance
Feel the throb of glorious liberty.

Thy banner, dear to all our hearts
Its sun and star alight
O never shall its shining field
Be dimmed by tyrants might.

Beautiful land of love, O land of light,
In thine embrace 'tis rapture to lie;
But it is glory ever, when thou art wronged
for us, thy sons to suffer and die.



Lupang Hinirang (filipino Version)

Bayang Magiliw
Perlas ng Silanganan,
Alab ng puso
Sa dibdib mo'y buhay.

Lupang hinirang,
Duyan ka ng magiting,
Sa manlulupig,
'Di ka pasisiil.

Sa dagat at bundok,
Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw,
May dilag ang tula at awit
Sa paglayang minamahal.

Ang kislap ng watawat mo'y
Tagumpay na nagniningning,
Ang bituin at araw niya
Kailan pa ma'y 'di magdidilim.

Lupa ng araw, ng luwalhati't pagsinta,
Buhay ay langit sa piling mo;
Aming ligaya, na 'pag may mang-aapi
Ang mamatay nang dahil sa 'yo.



keep your Filipino blood proud.
Lord,please make me a fitting instrument of your Will. And may I learn to spread Your love everyday of my life beyond the music.Amen

Just wondering.
What does music arrangement pertain to?
Is is the scale, tempo, meter, harmony, texture, and dynamics?
Is the type of instrument used part of it?

Cause I saw someone on tv play the National Anthem on guitar. As in instead of playing it on the piano, he plucked the guitar. Is it illegal or something?

Arrangement pertains to the setting of the music. It includes everything you just mentioned For example, the original National Anthem was written for piano only, then later for marching band. (And it doesn't even have lyrics.) Later composers and arrangers came up with different settings (or arrangements) that used a variety of instrument combinations and probably additional countermelodies. For all I care, you can even make an arrangement for flute, guitar, viola and harmonica The point of arrangement is that the essence of the music is still there, such as the melody and most (if not all) of the harmonic progression. Hence, a hypothetical version with rap lyrics would no longer be considered an arrangement, but essentially a derivative work based on the National Anthem.

Technically speaking, the National Anthem is in the public domain, which means it's not encumbered by copyrights. But the reason is not because it's the national anthem and hence should be used by the nation (that's not good enough a reason). The National Anthem is not copyrighted because:

1. its composer is long dead.
2. the national anthem, including the lyrics, are itself incorporated into law (you can even read the official Tagalog lyrics there)...and the texts of laws are automatically placed in the public domain, by virtue of existing copyrights laws.

With regard to rearranging the national anthem itself, this is a gray area. Purists insist that the National Anthem should never be rearranged, but the truth is the law is very vague on this...it actually contradicts itself!!! The Philippine Heraldic Code of 1998 (passed during the Centennial frenzy) says that only the arrangement of Julian Felipe should be used, but this implies that we are not obligated to sing the lyrics because:

1. Julian Felipe didn't compose Lupang Hinirang with lyrics in mind, and never collaborated with a lyricist;
2. Contemporary historical accounts mention that the National Anthem was played first on the piano (in the presence of Emilio Aguinaldo) without words on it;
3. Eyewitness accounts also mention that when the flag was unfurled, only instrumental music was played. Nobody was singing "the national anthem" precisely because there were no lyrics to sing.
4. the poem by Jose Palma ("Tierra adorada..."), which became the basis for the National Anthem, was written years long after marching bands throughout the country were playing the tune. (And, mind you, it wasn't the only lyrics written for it either, there were at least two other versions).

To compound the problem, there is no extant copy of either the piano-only arrangement or the marching band-only arrangement. What the law is asking for (the Julian Felipe arrangement) is next to impossible, as nobody knows today how the original arrangement really looked or sounded like.

So, literally speaking, the only permissible arrangements for the National Anthem "should be" for instrumental piano only OR for instrumental marching band only. But the law says that there are lyrics on it so...it only shows how ignorant some (if not all) Congressmen are
We have little to no culture of healthy polemics in the country, as any attempt to consider fault is taken as a personal attack. Rare are those that are able to deal with it properly. --- Alex Tioseco (1981-2009), critic

DISSENT IS LIBERATION; NO DEMOCRACY WITHOUT DISSENT
CRITICISM IS DISCOURSE, DIALECTIC AND EDUCATION

personally, mas prefer ko ang arrangement ni maestro san pedro over nepomuceno's.. though sabi nila eh ipinagbabawal ito diumano (which i think they wouldnt do, perhaps discourage lang)dahil sa tempo nito as compared sa "tamang" tempo.. yung grandiosity of his arrangement makes you feel proud to be a Filipino while singing it... two cents lang po..
