Selection Committee On National Anthem Received On Proposal Only

15:16 27/06/06

The selection committee of the Armenian national anthem has received no
more proposals besides the one submitted by Robert Amirkhanyan. The
committee will accept proposals by August 1. A committee member,
poet Davit HOHVHANNES thinks that there will be no miracles and a
new text and music of the national anthem will not be suggested. Perz
Zeituntsian, on the other hand, thinks that Aram Khachatryan’s music
is a valuable piece of art and is worth to be selected as a national
anthem. "If you find any other music that will be better that Aram
Khachatryan’s, I will be for it with both hands," he said.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
