Music for Freedom 

Some puzzlement at the choice of the Finlandia suite as the LibDem theme music for this election. Must have been a long night at Cowley Street speculates Simon Titley. But for me it looks OK (for sound I'll have to wait to hear the version used). The theme has been used as a song of freedom around the world - notably by the students at Tien An Men square before their demonstration was crushed.

For a background to the liberation themes in Sibelius' original composition see the Helsingin Sanomat.

Of course we could have used the original music for Calon Lan...
