The music used on this page is..
"Taps" (MP3)
This emotive and powerful Taps was adopted throughout the military.
In 1874 It was officially recognized by the U.S. Army.
It became standard at military funeral ceremonies in 1891.
There is something singularly beautiful and appropriate in the music of this wonderful call.
Its strains are melancholy, yet full of rest and peace.
Its echoes linger in the heart long after its tones have ceased to vibrate in the air.

While there are no official lyrics for Taps,
the following unofficial verse (author unknown)
is often used for Taps

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.
