Days of Our Lives (1967)

Description: The Song Festival in Tallinn. Estonians march to the festival of national song and dance. The chorus directed by Gustav Ernasaks performs the festivals anthem ‘Mu isamaa, mu õnn ja rõõm’ (My Country is My Pride and Joy) in the great outdoor shell outside Tallinn. The lyrics were an intense and moving expression of Estonian determination to survive as a people, and included such lines as ‘My flowering Estonia! Your pain boils in My Heart.’
