UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SONG, HISTORY AND LYRICS

BRIEF HISTORY

UEFA commissioned Tony Britten to arrange an anthem for the UEFA Champions League in 1992 which commenced in August 1992. He wrote a 'serious' classical piece, in a style similar to some of George Frideric Händel's piece. Tony Britten acknowledged that "there's a rising string phase which I pinched from Handel and then I wrote my own tune. The composition is heavily influenced by Händel's Zadok the Priest.It has a kind of Handelian feel to it but I like to think it's not a total rip-off".For the recording used in television transmissions of UEFA Champions League matches and events, the piece was performed by London's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and sung by the Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chorus.The chorus is in UEFA's three official languages: English, French, and German.SOURCE WIKIPEDIA
