Duple v. triple in national anthems
The article currently states that
- the British national anthem, "God Save the Queen," is in triple metre, as is that of the United States, "The Star-Spangled Banner," but this is highly unusual for national anthems, as almost all are in march time.
"Highly unusual" and "almost all" are over-statements. Almost a third of European (EU+EFTA) national anthems, for example, are in triple metre (and by no means all of those that are in duple time are played alla marcia). -- Picapica (talk) 08:21, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
