    Eternal Father, Strong to Save (Pappal) [211.01]

    Eternal Father is a popular hymn sung by members of the U.S., British and French Navies and is often called The Navy Hymn. The work was written in 1860/61 by two English clergymen, Rev. John Bacchus Dykes and the lyrics by Rev. William Whiting with inspiration from the Old and New Testaments. The Navy Hymn is also known as Melita. This noble music was a favorite of President Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt and was performed at the funeral of John F. Kennedy. Scott Pappal has arranged this moving work for brass quintet. It can be performed by moderately advanced performers and would be a very nice addition to a service. Score & parts. -the publisher
