Eternal Father Strong to Save
Programmatic in nature, this arrangement uses descending and ascending chromatics to imitate the undulation of the sea. Choirs may employ the singing bowl technique (described in the music) to sustain the lower bells or, alternatively, use the mallet roll. The melody is presented in three ways: first delicately with handchimes; then driving, accompanied by malleting; and finally in a bold full chorale style with embellishments, ending quietly with the chromatic sea motif. Measures total 89.
