    NEW FOR JUNE 2021For Those in Peril on the Sea is a British hymn also entilted Eternal Father, Strong to Save. It is commonly associated with martitime armed services and seafarers. It was written in 1860 by William Whiting, an Anglican churchman from Winchester, who was inspired by Psalm 107, which is a thanksgiving song to God and describes the dangers of the sea. He was brought up near the coast and at the age of 35, was nearly killed when the ship he was aboard nearly sank in a terrible storm, but he was spared.Both the British Royal Navy and the US Navy made the song popular by adopting it in the later part of the 19th century. It has also been adapted by such services as the British Army, Royal Marines and the US Coast Guard.As well as being titled For Those In Peril On The Sea which is taken from the last line of the first verse, it is also known as The Navy Hymn, Royal Navy Hymn, Hymn of Her Majesty's Armed Forces, and the United States Navy Hymn. It was regularly sung on board a whole manner of ships during services on voyages. The hymn appears in many hymnals, on TV programmes and is often sung at funerals where the deceased has served in the Navy, most notably at the funeral of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in April 2021.

    A Suffolk Prelude - Andrew Duncan

    Written for the Ipswich & Norwich Co-Op Band, A Suffolk Prelude is based around five traditional tunes from Suffolk:‘Nutting Time’,‘Blackberry Fold’,‘Cupid’s Garden’,‘A Seaman’s Life’‘The Bold Richard’The piece begins on the percussion and timpani alone leading through a crescendo into the first statement of the fanfare which is derived from a motif from the tune ‘Nutting Time’. This leads into a playing of the ‘Nutting Time’ tune which is then developed as the tune is passed around the band.‘Nutting Time’ is a jolly lighthearted tune about a ‘fair maid’ who meets a handsome young farmer called ‘Johnny’ when out gathering nuts in the wood. After a pause on the tubular bells the slow tune ‘Blackberry Fold’ is presented as a solo for Flugel Horn, then as a full band version.‘Blackberry Fold’ is a touching song about a Suffolk squire who gets married well below his station to a beautiful milkmaid, simply because he loves her! They live happily ever after.The next tune to be heard is the juanty ‘Cupid’s Garden’ played firstly as a solo on the Euphonium, and again this is about the subject of love. This song is sung from a sailors prospective and he tells how he met a lovely maiden and has promised to marry her when he returns from duty at sea.The trombones then play the noble tune ‘A Seaman’s Life’. This tune seems to serve as a warning to young girls about the fickle nature and the total unsuitability of marrying a sailor! ‘Oh a seaman’s life is a merry merry life, they’ll rob young girls of their heart’s delight, they will leave them behind for to sail one morn, but they never know when they’ll return’. Despite this it is a fine tune!The last tune featured is ‘The Bold Richard’ which is played by all the bass instruments in the band. This is a song telling how the Royal Navy friggate ‘The Bold Richard’ went to battle against a French friggate destroying her and taking her crew as prisoners.Suffolk Prelude goes on to feature a slow version of the tune ‘A Seaman’s Life’ played alongside a fast version of the tune ‘Cupid’s Garden’. The opening fanfare then returns leading into a final coda section.
