Eternal Father, Strong to Save

Best known as both the Royal Navy Hymn of the United Kingdom and Navy Hymn of the United States, Eternal Father Strong to Save has been used at memorials such as the funeral service for John F. Kennedy in 1963 and the service for the astronauts of the space shuttle Columbia in 2003. This setting retains the traditional solemnity and majesty of this hymn, while adding a sense of ceremonial dignity and splendor with the brass quintet parts.
