    Music of the Navy...

    Hi Krummhorn - Hi Giwro,

    Check this dude out - he does an improvisation that includes the Navy Hymn *Eternal Father, Strong to Save*:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vSXa...eature=related

    Gosh - everytime I hear that hymn I break down and sob because it is so solemn, majestic, and beautiful.

    Hey, this forum uses Navy rank titles...

    Cheers,

    Corno

    Hi Corno Dolce,

    What a most splendid improv on this hymn. Yes, I also get very emotional even when playing it at services. This performance was very majestic - to have been there would have been so very inspiring.

    Hello Contratrombone64,

    Yes sir, the organ is made by Danish firm of Marcussen & Søn aka Marcussen/Zachariassen.
    Personally, I never been too keen on their instruments but the organ used in the video is in the Groote te Sint Laurenskerk in Rotterdam and is spectacular. I really like it.

    Click on the link for the specs:
