Arranged for a beginning string group, these easy-to-play folk hymns are recommended for school programs, worship services, and recitals. This textured arrangement of “Amazing Grace” features four variations. Cellist Yo-Yo Ma has recorded “Simple Gifts,” a folk hymn that has become part of the classical music tradition, and he performed the tune with violinist Itzhak Perlman and others at President Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration.
