"All hail, Liberia, hail!"
“I believe that Liberia is a sacred nation, called by God to a great work for Africa, for the Negro race, and for humanity." - Nathaniel R. Richardson
While writing a paper on the Liberian national anthem, I happen across this precious performance.
Daniel Bashiel Warner, the man that gave us the words, "All hail, Liberia, hail!"
Composer-pianist Olmstead Luca wrote the strangely "Oh, say can you see"-reminiscent melody.
