Official Anthem of Soviet Estonia (1948)

Music: Gustav Ernesaks; Lyrics: Johannes Semper
Description: This song was the official anthem of the Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic, replacing the beloved “Mu isamaa, mu õnn ja rõõm” in everything but the hearts of patriotic Estonians — even though the music was also written by Gustav Ernasaks. It was nonetheless the only Soviet republic anthem that did not mention the Russian people.
