|O Canada (click here to listen)|
Thursday, June 20, 2013
On July 1, 1980, a proclamation declared "O Canada" the Canadian National Anthem. Written slightly more than 100 years prior (composed by Calixa Lavallée / french lyrics by Sir Adolphe-Basile Routhier), originally in French, it became the national anthem on Canada Day thirty-three years ago. As we approach Canada Day 2013, let's pay tribute to this beautiful anthem.
