The melody of the Brazilian national anthem (from Portuguese: Hino Nacional Brasileiro) was composed by Francisco Manuel da Silva in 1822 and had been given at least two sets of lyrics before a decree of 1922 gave it the definitive lyrics, by Joaquim Osrio Duque Estrada, after several changes were made to his proposal, written in 1909. In style, the music resembles early Romantic Italian music such as that of Gioacchino Rossini.
During the Imperial period (1822-1889) and in the early years of the Republic, the national anthem was usually performed with no lyrics.
When the Republic was proclaimed, the ’Hymn to the Proclamation of the Republic’ was composed and adopted as one of Brazil’s official patriotic songs, equivalent in status to the ’Hymn to Independence’ and to the ’Hymn to the Flag’, the latter being of more recent composition.
Several republicans suggested that the newly composed hymn commemorating the proclamation of the Republic should replace the music composed upon the foundation of the Empire.
