The Everlasting Arms

Performed by Matt Perri

Music by Martin Broones

Lyrics by Paul Francis Webster

Martin Broones (1901 – 1971) had a comprehensive background in the world of music, in theatre, in motion pictures, radio, and television. His musical styles range from Classical to Broadway to the Hollywood film scoring of the 1940-50’s.

Besides an extensive repertoire of concert music, Mr. Broones composed many well-known sacred songs which have been sung all over the world now for many years. A devout spiritual thinker, Mr. Broones withdrew from business in 1948 to devote his full time to just that.

“Be Still and Know” is full of beautiful melodies and inspiring messages. Each song is set to piano accompaniment and matched with wonderful inspirational vocalists:  Margaret Dorn, Jennifer Foster, Matt Perri, Judy McLane, Julia Wade, Suzanne Waters  with accompanist William Lewis.
