Misc. Comments

Publication History

  • The first appearance of the verse God Save the King was in a 1744 collection entitled Harmonia Anglicana, There is no direct evidence that Carey was the composer, though it's not impossible that the music first appeared in an obscure ballad of his. The tune is also sung to words by Samuel Francis Smith (1808-1895), first issued in an 1832 collection by Lowell Mason entitled The Choir with the title America (now often referred to as My Country 'Tis Of Thee). American composer Charles Ives' Variations on "America" uses this melody as a basis.
  • From 1871 to 1918 Heil dir im Siegerkranz was the unofficial national anthem of the German Empire and was the national anthem of the Kingdom of Prussia.
