    (Wikipedia) - First Iranian national anthem

    Salām-e Shāh (Persian: سلام شاه‎, Translation: Royal Salute) was the royal and national anthem of Persia (Iran) between 1873 and 1909. Alfred Jean Baptiste Lemaire composed this anthem in 1873 by the order of Naser al-Din Shah. It had no lyrics.

    Salām-e Shāh was played in official ceremonies during the reign of Naser al-Din Shah, Mozaffar ad-Din Shah and Mohammad Ali Shah. It was also played as Persian national anthem during Naser al-Din Shah’s and Mozaffar ad-Din Shah’s European tours.

    In 1909 after the fall of Mohammad Ali Shah, the anthem was abolished and after coronation of his son and successor Ahmad Shah, salute of sublime state of Persia was adopted as Persian national anthem.

    Newer version by Melal orchestra (Irān-e Javān)

    This Anthem was rearranged, recomposed and orchestrated by the Iranian composer Siavash Beizai. Only the main parts of this hymn are derived from the original version. There are also some harmonic and formal corrections in this piece. The Introduction, the middle part and the closing part are composed by Siavash Beizai too. After the great popularity of this Anthem, it has been increasingly misused by the official Iranian Radio and Television and the Government without any permission of the cocomposer Siavash Beizai.

    Bijan Taraqi was asked by Peyman Soltani, The leader of Melal Orchestra of Iran, to write a lyric for the old national anthem. This new version of the anthem was performed in October 2005 by Melal Orchestra of Iran. The singer of this version is Salar Aghili.
