In honor of the 25th of March (Greek Independence Day) here a couple of version of the Greek National Anthem (could not find one without nationalist pictures. Ah well c'est la vie)
1) The full anthem (never sung fully) runs 53 minutes
The execution is in the original 19th century style
2) The anthem in the more modern rendition used by the Greek Army and state. You can easily grasp the difference of the two styles
3) The full lyrics of the 158 Stanzas in English. In many ways the Hymn to Liberty is essentially a Liberal Nationalist Hymn. In its full lyrics the anthem attempts to connect the greek revolution with liberal nationalist revolutions in other parts of the world and far of america. Essentially if you take out he specific Greek reference this is the 19th century Liberal anthem.
4) and some academic reading

By the way, I played that '1821' game through a couple of times. Not too bad.

It had a few crashes on mine (Windows 7 on one and XP on the other), but I played through twice.
Found a bit of a blind spot on the computer AI, but then that may reflect the actual Ottoman lethargy.
