Wilhelmus
van Nassouwe", usually known just as the "Wilhelmus" (Dutch: Het Wilhelmus; pronounced [ɦɛt ʋɪlˈɦɛlmɵs] ( listen); English translation: "The William"), is the national anthem of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Arrangement
In music, an arrangement is a musical reconceptualization of a previously composed work.[1] It may differ from the original work by means of reharmonization, melodic paraphrasing, orchestration, or development of the formal structure. Arranging differs from orchestration as the latter process is limited to the assignment of notes to instruments for performance by an orchestra, concert band, or other musical ensemble. Arranging "involves adding compositional techniques, such as new thematic material for introductions, transitions, or modulations, and endings.... Arranging is the art of giving an existing melody musical variety".[2]Contents1 Classical music 2 Popular music 3 Jazz 4 For instrumental groups4.1 Strings4.1.1 Size of the string section5 Further reading 6 See also 7 ReferencesClassical music[edit] Arrangement

Capture Of Brielle
The Capture of Brielle by the Watergeuzen, on 1 April 1572 marked a turning point in the uprising of the Low Countries against Spain in the Eighty Years' War. Militarily the success was minor as the port of Brielle was undefended, but it provided the first foothold on land for the rebels at a time when the rebellion was all but crushed, and it offered the sign for a new revolt throughout the Netherlands which led to the formation of the Dutch Republic.Contents1 Overview 2 Legacy 3 In literature 4 References 5 Further readingOverview[edit] The Watergeuzen were led by William van der Marck, Lord of Lumey,[1] and by two of his captains, Willem Bloys van Treslong and Lenaert Jansz de Graeff.[2][3] After they were expelled from England by Elizabeth I, they needed a place to shelter their 25 ships.[1] As they sailed towards Brielle, they were surprised to find out that the Spanish garrison had left in order to deal with trouble in Utrecht
