The simple melody of this famous hymn is treated to lush harmonizations and searing emotion. In this arrangement, the tune is heard in its entirety three times, each time becoming more impassioned. Between each iteration of the hymn, the composer includes original material that serves to bridge the ardent treatment of the multiple verses. Amazing Grace is a wonderful vehicle for increasing the musicality of the young intermediate band. Correlated with Tradition of Excellence Book 2, page 22.
