Amazing Grace is one of the most widely known and celebrated Christian hymns. Published in 1779, and with words by the Anglican clergyman John Newton, this beloved hymn has spoken into countless lives for the past two centuries. I imagine its legacy will continue through future generations.
This expressive and poignant arrangement for flute and piano captures the simple, but beautiful tune in a unique way. The melody, mostly in the flute part, and occasionally in the piano, feels somewhat free and improvised. But I assure you, it is very much composed!
Your church congregation will thoroughly enjoy the free-flowing melodic line coupled with the expressive countermelodies. The dramatic modulation is sure to evoke a few gasps from listeners.
