Footnotes

1 Beethoven, Variations in C major on the English song "God save the king," WoO 78. Beethoven’s original composition was indeed based on the English tune in response to a commission from the folk song collector George Thompson: "Je vous envoie ci joint des Variations sur 2 thêmes anglais, qui sont bien faciles et qui, à ce que j'espère, auront un bons succès."), see Beethoven-Haus. Schenker, however, refers to the German song "Heil dir im Siegerkranz," sung to the same melody. "Heil dir im Siegerkranz" (German: “Hail to Thee in Victor's Crown”) was from 1871 to 1918 the unofficial national anthem of the German Empire. Previously it had been the anthem of Prussia, but the melody of the hymn is actually the same as the British anthem, "God Save the King" and "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" from USA . For both reasons, the song failed to become popular within some circles in Germany. See Siegerkranz (Wikipedia). In the light of this background, it is interesting that Schenker uses the title of the German song to identify Beethoven’s variations. (Sigrun Heinzelmann)
