Misc. Comments

Though the words of this version are those of the current official Bavarian anthem (adopted in 1946), the melody is not the same as Max Kunz's 1835 anthem. So although the Internationale Josef Gabriel Rheinberger Gesellschaft work list describes this as "Bayerische Hymne, arrangiert für gemischten Chor und Blechorchester", this is possibly not arranged in the sense of Rheinberger arranging someone else's melody unless there is another version of the anthem that Rheinberger used. Tagged as original music for now. Also, since the melody is not the official national anthem, this is tagged as a secular hymn, and not a national anthem.

Published for chorus or unison chorus or men's chorus and band (or voice and piano) in 1880 by Aibl. (Also in an arrangement for band without voices). 1880 is publication date, not sure if we know it's the composition date?
