God Defend New Zealand Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
This is generally considered to be New Zealand's national anthem. The words were written by Thomas Bracken of Dunedin around 1870 as a poem. Bracken was born in Ireland and grew up in Australia before moving to New Zealand. In 1876 a competition was held for music to accompany the words, and it was won by Joseph Woods, earning him the prize of ten guineas. Woods was born in Tasmania. In 1977 'God Defend New Zealand' was officially made the second National Anthem of New Zealand, alongside 'God save the Queen'. These days, 'God Save the Queen' is played and sung when monarchy or Royal Family are present, otherwise, 'God Defend New Zealand' is generally used.
