1. amaZing

From the recording amaZing

“amaZing” is my newest orchestral composition, an artistic presentation (not an arrangement) of the popular hymn tune, “Amazing Grace.”   The first portion of this composition was originally presented as ghostly fragments in my orchestra work, “and left ol’ Joe a bone, AMAZING!.”   The entire tune is now represented with a focus on preserving the intensity that is in the original hymn.    It would be a perfect beginning to an orchestra concert, a slow and intense fanfare.        October 2016,     Gerald Plain
