I have posted up a piece by Mikola Szczahłou-Kulikowicz (1893-1969).

It is a song (with orchestra) called Pahonia.  The pahonia is a symbol of Belarus - it's a mounted horseman holding a sword.    It was  the coat of arms of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the Belarusian Democratic Republic in 1918 and of the Republic of Belarus from 1991 to 1995. Image here -

From various sources, using google-translate:
