God Save The Queen

It is the de facto national anthem of the United Kingdom and some of its territories;one of the two national anthems of New Zealand (since 1977) and those of Britain's territories that have their own additional local anthem;and the royal anthem of Australia (since 1984),Canada (since 1980),etc."Gott erhalte Franz den Kaiser" : Haydn had heard "God save the King" in London and was impressed by the way it was sung by the Common Man in support of the Royal family.He set upon repeating this idea in the then most powerful European monarchy.The words were inspired by the English anthem as well as the tune,which was designed for untrained singers.The first line of the anthem changed with each new emperor until 1918. Austrian monarchists continued to use this anthem after 1918 in the hope to restore the monarchy.Kitsade by Beth Rimmer(Steamtown Detectives and Impressionist Garden)
