“Armed Forces Medley (Eternal Father, Strong to Save)” – MATERNA; MELITA; John Philip Sousa; Jacques Offenbach; Charles A. Zimmermann; Robert MacArthur Crawford, arranged by Kevin McChesney for 3-5 Octaves Handbells with Optional Brass Quintet or Piano or Organ, and Optional Percussion (Level III+)
Eternal Father, Strong to Save is known as the Navy Hymn but actually has lyrics for all of the Armed Forces. In this arrangement, the Eternal Father melody is used to connect the songs for each segment of the military. The tune for each branch of the military is styled in a way that reflects that branch – marching for the Army, flowing waves for the Navy and Marines, and soaring lines for the Air Force.
