It's a sensitive and elegant setting of America's favorite folk melody. Opens with a haunting piano figure followed by a soprano solo (or section). Features an a cappella section with a harmonization reminiscent of Copland. AMAZING GRACE is one of Jay Althouse's finest arrangements and could become a choral classic. A touchingly simple, yet sophisticated arrangement.
