01.14 우리를 보라 Urirŭl pora Look at us! 我らを見よ
Composer: Hwang Jin-yong 황진영, lyrics: Jang Tongu 전동우, 1992
05.11 해당화의 마음 Hedanghwaye maŭm The spirit of rose ヘダンファ（ハマナス）の心
The type of rose meant here is Rosa rugosa, a very thorny rose species with red flowers that originally grew on poor sandy soil around the Japan/Korean Sea and adjacent areas. As it has by now successfully spread throughout most of the world, its sprit can be said to be rather strong.
Composition and lyrics: Han Hui-se 한희세, 1995
Vocal duo: Jong Su-hyang & Ri Myong-hui, who hereby entered the ensemble without any announcement.
08.38 녀성해안포병의 노래 Nyŏsŏng hean phopyŏngye nore Song of coastal artillery women 女性海岸砲兵の歌
Composition: Han Hye-se 한희세, lyrics: Pak Nam-hyon 박남현, date unknown. One could have expected this to be from the Korean War period, but Han has reportedly at least one composition made in the 1990s (https://youtu.be/6og66S6M8Cs), so that this song is likely be from a movie.

55.17 인민이 사랑하는 우리 령도자 Inmini saranganŭn uri ryŏngdoja Our beloved leader 人民が愛する我が領導者
Composition: Jin Hong-guk 전홍국, lyrics: Ryu Tong-ho 류동호, 2012
A favoured Kim Jong Un song, performed often also by other ensembles in the summer and autumn. Third time for MBB.
Vocal sextet: Pak Mi-kyong changes her location twice, like in the earlier performances. Ri Myong-hui stayed out of the final song. As there is no known aversion towards septets in North Korea – also that form is used a lot in other concerts – a possible explanation is that Ri is such a new addition that she had no time to rehearse the choreography of all songs with the other members.

A specific feature of this concert was the military units as the audience, and once also as a co-performer.
Ri Myong-hui started in this concert as the seventh member of the Anger Choir
The hair of most ladies was still rather long; Ri Yun-hui here with her drums.
Kim Yu-kyong clearly holding the rank of a captain, and being the lead singer of the band.
