Eternal Father Strong to Save

September 11, 2011

On account of it being the 10th anniversary of September 11, one of the members of the schola had suggested that we sing this, so we did it for recessional.  Here is a random Youtube version which is quite nice, actually.  It really wants an “Amen” at the end, however (in my opinion).  Below is a Roman numeral analysis I did for the fun of it; this is a good example of second semester music theory stuff like modulating and secondary function. 

Side note: In case you hadn’t noticed, I like music theory, as well as explaining it to other people.  If I keep posting explanatory posts like I have been, I will eventually have an entire Useful Bloggy Music Theory Course at my disposal.  This post could then be “Roman Numeral Analysis: Example D” or something like that.
