"""Eternal Father, Strong to Save"" is a hymn traditionally associated with seafarers, particularly in the maritime armed services. Written in 1860, its author William Whiting was inspired by the dangers of the sea described in Psalm 107. John B. Dykes, an Anglican clergyman, composed the tune ""Melita"" to accompany the text in 1861. This version is for standard woodwind quintet, and includes an optional bass clarinet part for ensembles with no bassoon. Lush romantic harmonies and the passing of the melody from player to player are its cornerstones. Search terms: Maiden, Müller, Mueller, Muller, Maiden Müller, Maiden Mueller, Maiden Muller".
