Juozas Naujalis (09/04/1869 - 09/09/1934), a Lithuanian composer, organist and choir leader; born in Raudondvaris, near Kaunas, died in Kaunas, Lithuania. Naujalis embarked on his creative path at the end of the 19th century, and is acclaimed the patriarch of Lithuanian music. His work and compositions, especially his songs, are significant in the history of Lithuanian music. Juozas Naujalis' melodious, easily remembered tunes were sung throughout Lithuania during the time of the development of its national consciousness, and his "Lietuva brangi" (My Dear Lithuania) became the true anthem of the Lithuanian people.
