873 [Possible Malayan national anthem for voices and band] 1959
[No tempo mark on sketches]
 D 1959. HC was one of three Western composers commissioned to write
music for a new anthem for Malaya after it became independent on
31 Aug 1957. HC was paid for his contribution (the copy of which
was kept by the Malayan government), but it and all the other spe-
cially written songs were passed over in favor of Negara Ku ("My
Country"), an old Malayan tune with a new text supplied by a com-
mittee. HC's music was politely declined because it was thought to
be "too Chinese"?a delicate matter in the politics and society of
Malaya (and now of Malaysia).
