Nothing much to do this Sunday morning, so I thought I'd have a look at some of my old songs and covers ... long story short, I've re-done "Amazing Grace", which I'd first covered in 2019. This one is dedicated to Ed Shaw, who has always been ever so kindly enthusiastic about my little songs and arrangements, but particularly about this one, as I remember :-)

I just took the BIAB MIDI band below, took the RealDrums out and replaced the other MIDI sounds in Mixcraft Pro Studio 9. A dash of "Cathedral"-level reverb and here it is :-) All thoughts and comments welcome - thank you for listening!

EDIT: worked some more on it, here is the FINAL (for now, at least) link:


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.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to feel,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
