God Save the Queen


The "National Anthem of England" refers to "God Save the Queen," a patriotic song used as the national anthem for England and the United Kingdom. Its origins date back to the 18th century, with various composers attributed to its creation. The original key of the anthem is typically in G major. It is traditionally performed with a slow tempo and features a stately melody played by brass instruments. The lyrics, which invoke divine protection for the monarch, are sung to the tune. Though the anthem is often associated with England, it is also used as the national anthem for the United Kingdom as a whole.
