Deșteaptă-te, române!

The Romanian National Anthem, Deșteaptă-te, române!, is, my opinion, one of the most moving songs ever written.

The melody is hauntingly beautiful, and the lyrics stir a combination of nostalgic longing and hope for the future.

On my recent album, Vivamus, Amemus, Oremus, I include my version of this gorgeous song.  You can listen to it for free and see an English translation of the lyrics in this video and stream it on Spotify or download it on iTunes or Amazon.
