Ok, I found this (Himno de Finlandia) -- English translation of lyrics:

"O, Finland, behold, your day is dawning,
The threat of night has been banished away,
And the lark of morning in the brightness sings,
As though the very firmament would sing.
The powers of the night are vanquished by the morning light,
Your day is dawning, O land of birth.
O, rise, Finland, rise up high
Your head, wreathed with great memories.
O, rise, Finland, you showed to the world
That you drove away the slavery,
And that you did not bend under oppression,
Your day is dawning, O land of birth."

The mp3 file is converted to wav format (@1411 kbps). I tested it inside the game, (the wav is 22 MB), and this male choral version is very affecting.

Yes, Finlandia is very affecting song. It's been used also in the classic movie Tuntematon sotilas (Unknown soldier). Most recommended if you can find it somewhere. Talvisota-movie is another classic.

As a side note, Renny Harlin used Finlandia theme in Die Hard 3 in the scene where terrorist airplane is about to rise from the snowy airfield He has something 'Finnish' in every movie.

Renny directed Die Hard 2, not 3

There's more to the "Finlandia-hymni" than this, but this is a very dramatic part indeed!

quote:

O, rise, Finland, rise up high
Your head, wreathed with great memories.


I don't know who translated this, but it clearly says "O rise, Finland, raise up high your head wreathed with great memories." It does make a lot more sense, too. ;)
