Duration: 5 minutes 30
Other Info: This arrangement was written for Andrew Earis and the choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields, London.
This is a beautiful setting of the well known hymn. This arrangement can be performed in a variety of ways including the use of a solo instrument (e.g. a sax, trumpet or trombone) in the middle section after the second time bar using the chords for some gentle improvising.
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
Will Todd recently created an orchestrated version of his arrangement for the Hope For Grenfell Concert.
Opera Holland Park marked the one year anniversary of the Grenfell disaster with a special gala performance, raising money for the Rugby Portobello Trust. The gala was given in memory of Debbie Lamprell, who was a member of the OHP’s staff when she died in the Grenfell fire, and for all victims and their families and friends.
Will Todd led a massed choir and City of London Sinfonia in a new orchestral arrangement of his setting of Amazing Grace.
Available to purchase from good music shops. Amazing Grace is published by Boosey & Hawkes.
