Kde Domov Můj? [Where is my Home?], the national anthem of the Czech Republic. One of my most favorite countries and anthems, so I had to do it I hope you like it; please leave feedback and note that this is a work in progress, so it is not done yet

I'm still working on all of the requests, sorry I'm taking so long (school...). The complete list of countries I am planning on doing can be found in the description of my arrangement of the Ukrainian national anthem. In case you haven't been following them, so far I have done Russia, Canada, Ukraine, and Germany/the Austrian Empire. Make sure to "czech" (sorry) those out too, if you haven't already!

I really must thank you, man. I should explain, I printed off this arrangement of yours in a rush, not having enough time to create my own. It was Tuesday, in late November, and we had a really unique visitor. Col. Vaclav Blahunek, director of the Czech Palace Guard and Police band, was stopping by to give our band tips. I know I had to make an impression on this one man who would only see us for a day and probably not remember our faces again. So I did the only thing I could do. I shoved this in front of our limited band and started waving my arms in what vaguely seemed like 4/4 time. I was told later that it was actually pretty good. After two days of practice, the 17 bar score was down and our Czech official was none the wiser. He sat down in the Clarinet section and began inspecting a student's. That's when I made my move. After making sure everyone removed every fermata from their sheets because I had gotten the measure numbers mixed up and it was too confusing, I started conducting. As the first bar drew to a close, the man perked up, shot out of his seat, faced the band, and saluted. We played for what seemed like only a few minutes and the man, obviously impressed, went on to brag to a local college about me. He later signed the very compressed score I had printed out before hand. Only complaint I have is that the Tuba part is too low. Our lead (and only) tubist had to read off of the Euphonium part. TL;DL, played this for a Czech guy. He loved it.
Thanks for telling me this! I'm really glad that you could use it. I arrange and compose for enjoyment, but when it's actually useful to someone, that's even more satisfying. Now I just wish I could have been there to see it haha ^^ I'm not a tuba player; in fact, I don't play any wind instruments, so I'm glad it was playable haha. I'm sincerely honored ^^
