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.
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.
