NATO Has Approved its Official Hymn, Composed by a Military from Luxembourg

On Wednesday, January 3, the Atlantic Alliance approved its official anthem, a composition written in 1989 by Captain André Reichling, director of the Luxembourg Military Band.

Apel Pamięci: The Ceremony of the Polish Army to Honor Its Fallen for the Homeland
A French Legionnaire Delights Travelers from a Train Station with a Piano Piece

Since its composition this anthem has played in numerous NATO events, but always with an unofficial character. The hymn has no lyrics, and it is scored for twenty musical instruments: piccolo, flute, oboe, three clarinets, three saxophones, two cornets, two trumpets, horn, baritone horn, three trombones, tuba, and snare drum.
