"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.
