0 votes
ABeethoven's Fifth Symphony
BParry's "Jerusalem"
CBeethoven's "Ode to Joy"
DElgar's Enigma Variations

Correct Option: 1  

Beethoven's Fifth Symphony
The opening motif of the Fifth Symphony - three dots and a dash - is the Morse symbol for "V", the victory symbol adopted in the war. The " Ode to Joy" became associated with the first World War not the second, from its singing by German prisoners in Japan; it is now performed annually by mass choirs in Japan.
