This video features NZ pianist Kris Baines performing "God Defend New Zealand", in a reflective style. There is also a moving monument scene with a father and his children paying homage. 

This is a music video featuring the music of Kris Baines, a NZ based solo piano artist. The video features Kris performing the national anthem, "God Defend New Zealand", in a reflective, instrumental style. There is a scene in the video where a father and his children pay homage at a small town war memorial, laying a poppy, looking at the names of the fallen, and reminiscing over a photo of a relative who served. The video also features picturesque locations around Christchurch and Leeston - places which we can enjoy because of the sacrifices made of those who went before us. The video was released on Saturday 21 April, 2018 an can be viewed here. The video was made entirely with volunteer help from friends and locals and although the music and sheet music are available for purchase, the video itself is not monetised.
