Honored by the Greek Olympic Committee Sevy wrote and performed
this Anthem for the Sydney 2000 Torch Festival in Greece.

"The torch of freedom has always been protected by the Greeks.
  The Olympic Torch is being protected by a girl from the Diaspora."

" Thn floga thV eleuqeriaV, thn prostateuan panta oi EllhneV.
  Thn Olumpiakh Floga thn prostateuei ena koritsi thV DiasporaV.

Essence of the Anthem

A beautifully composed anthem written in a contemporary classical style, Sevy’s work captures a unique perspective and sense of history which resonates the Olympic Truce’s message of peace. It depicts an image of different hands passing the torch through time. It describes the paradox that we, mortal and imperfect as we are, have managed to carry safely the Olympic Torch “through changing ages”, to keep its virtuous light immortal, and to continue to “raise it high” in a universal prayer for peace on earth.

Refrain 2: Sweet Trumpet of Glory,

Call the gods in urgent song.

We hold on for peace through our troubled story,

Though the road is hard,

And the race is long.
