God save the Queen sang by a French engine is indeed funny http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Well it is even though this song was also sung in France in 1686 (Domine , Salvum fac regem " ) after Louis XIV had healed from a disease , written by Duchesse de Brinon and put in music by J-B. Lully , there are proofs of this in a certain book called "Souvenirs" by Duchesse of Crequy , that it was sang in the country long before , and it stayed the hymn of the monarchy until 1792 and its end . http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The text "Domine, salvum fac Regem", which is the latin version of "God save the King", was certainly used by all French composers of 'grand motets' in the 17th and 18th century, but it was not necessary for the King to be ill: it was customary and oligatory to end all the concerts in the "Concert Spirituel" with a setting of the text.

But... the Lully history is false. "Domine salvum fac Regem" is an ancient text, much older than the Duchesse of Brinon, and the famous "Souvenirs of the Duchesse of Crequy" are proven to be a 19th century hoax.

The Lully theory also points Handel as the "thief" of the work, but, even if Handel is known to "borrow" many themes from other authors for his purposes -often improving the original- there's no documentary trace of this, and Handel would have certainly made a better job.

The only sure thing is that Arne made a version of it as soon as 1745 -he also adapted "Rule Britannia" for his ballad operas- and that the music was composed not much time before -there are several theories about who the author can be.

In fact, John Bull composed a fairly similar tune in the fist half of 17th century, and it is not hard to imagine that *someone* arranged it, and adapted some lyrics inspired by the traditional French use of the Latin text.

BTW, the tune was so popular that has been widely used out of Britain, as a folk melody, as a sacred hymn, or even as national anthem -like in Liechtenstein.

It's widely recognised and doesn't cover a very broad range of the audio spectrum. The first point means people will "get it". The second means the engine can cover all the notes in the tune without having to go to very low or very high parts of the rev range where there may be a risk of stalling or over revving during the performance.

No wonder they are the champs - with these all singing, all dancing cars!

This reminds me of Top Gear - they drove a bunch of cars, sampling their engines to get the notes needed to put together the Top Gear-theme. Although, this beats it! Now, I wonder if my BMW can sing as well? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Hey, crater, what's wrong with Schumi? One of the absolutely most talented drivers that ever existed. For a while it seemed almost like routine - if he didn't crash, he won. I like(d) Senna as well. And Prost, Piquet, Mansell, Lauda, Ickx, Hill, Stuart, Gurney, McLaren, Brabham, Fangio... and the greatest ever - Jim Clark... The point is, Schumi is equal to these legends and at least I will miss him in F1 circus.
