Marcha Real


The "Spanish National Anthem Marcha Real" is traditionally performed in the key of F major. It is one of the few national anthems in the world without official lyrics. The music, known as "Marcha Real," was composed by an unknown author, with Manuel de Espinosa possibly being one of the earliest arrangers. The anthem has a long history, dating back to the 18th century, and it has undergone various adaptations over time. Interestingly, it was only officially adopted as the Spanish national anthem in 1770. The melody is a stately and regal march, often performed with orchestral accompaniment, and it is characterized by its dignified and powerful sound, reflecting the grandeur of Spain's history and culture.
