New Music week 44: NEW BRITAIN

52 in 52This week’s addition to my 52 in 52 series is a setting of one of the most beloved hymns ever written: NEW BRITAIN (“Amazing Grace”). For years, I’ve avoided writing a keyboard arrangement of this tune, but I’m very pleased with the finished product!* This can be played on either piano or organ, or a solo instrument could play the treble clef while the keyboard plays the bass clef as accompaniment. (Since some hymnals have retained the key of G, while others have transposed this hymn to F, I’ve included both keys.)

*Can anyone guess which Chopin piece I had in mind while writing this hymn setting?
