Tune of the Day: Bože pravde
National anthem of Serbia
This song, whose title is usually translated into English as “God of Justice”, was originally written in 1872 by composer Davorin Jenko as a piece for the theater play Marko kazuje na kome je carstvo (“Marko names the Emperor”). Its immense popularity with audiences prompted its adoption as the Serbian national anthem.
Thanks to Sarah for suggesting this tune!
