The tune KREMSER is named after a Viennese composer, Edward Kremser (1838-1914).
He found the melody and its anonymous patriotic text in a collection of Dutch folk songs.
He translated the text into German and used the melody to fashion the hymn in 1877.
Theodore Baker (1851-1934) worked from Kremser's German text to create an English translation,
which he published in 1894.
