I remember seeing documentaries from President Kennedy's funeral and I was amazed at the quality of sound and musicianship from "The President's Own" - especially from a black and white recording on TV.

During the passing of President Reagan I was living in Staunton VA. While watching the news coverage I decided to get in my car and drive to DC. It's a day that I'll never forget. I met people from all over the country that were there for the president. I waited hours to walk through the Capital rotunda. Its been 6 years and seeing the faces and expressions in the photos still bring back memories.

The music is National Hymn, God of Our Fathers and its performed by "The Presidents Own" Marine Band. I believe this was a favorite of President Reagan and this arrangement was written for his inauguration.
