Though a few days late, we wanted to share some information about the American national anthem…

It seems Francis Scott Key is known for writing the words, but perhaps not so many people know where the music comes from.

A British composer and organist by the name of John Stafford Smith, is the man responsible for writing a song called “The Anacreontic Song“.  The tune worked with Scott Key’s lyrics, and the song became popular.  It was first published as “The Star Spangled Banner” by Thomas Carr, of Carss Music Store in Baltimore.

Smith was a collector of music scores, and was responsible for some publications.
