Title: Ode to Joy (from The Ninth Symphony)
Composer: L. von Beethoven

Notes: Also known by the hymn title "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee". In 1972, this melody (without the words) was adopted as the Anthem of Europe by the Council of Europe and subsequently by the European Union in 1985. It's become particularly popular during the Easter season.
