The Chilean National Anthem

"Cancion Nacional de Chile." Ramon Carnicer. Paris: El Americano, n.d.

With the fantastic rescue of thirty-three Chilean miners, the whole world can breathe a sigh of relief. But none can be more relieved than the miners, emerging into the sunshine again after seventy days trapped underground. Chilean president Sebastian Pinera sang their national anthem with Luis Urzua, the last of the miners rescued. Celebrate their return to the earth’s surface with one of several editions of the “Cancion National de Chile,” available in the Lauro Ayestarán Collection in the Performing Arts Encyclopedia.
