  2. ThanksAriya and Sam for sharing.
    The tune is a westernized version of Dhunno Budunge that is used in the Hymn for Sri Lanka, words by W. S. Senior ( former Principal of Trinity College, died 1938) and harmonized by Deva Surya Sena. Originally it was in John de Silva’s play Sri Sangabo and the music was composed by an Indian, Visvanath Laojee( early 1920s).
    Very appropriate words and music to unite SL.The soprano singing this song above is a doctor and a Wickramasinghe???
    Check out the Hymn for Sri Lanka on U-tube. Lovely words.
