Choral Reflection on Amazing Grace - SSAA edition
John Newton, John Rees
Item #: G-7198
A serious choral work for women’s chorus, dedicated to the children of the victims of 9/11. After the second stanza, a chorale-like Kyrie eleison section is introduced and is then juxtaposed with the tune on stanza 3, sung by the mezzo-soprano soloist. The work continues to develop in skillful ways that crescendo through ff alleluias, eventually diminishing to a pp “Was lost, but now I’m found.” Serious concert material.
