Gift of Grace, The
Performance options for this arrangement based on "Amazing Grace" include optional 3,4, or 5 octaves of handchimes, optional solo C instrument or optional C instrument duet. The combination of the various instruments makes for "graceful" timbres and colors of expressiveness. Melody atop strong chords emphasizes the message of the text, and the use of eighth-note and triplet passages creates a flowing motion. Instrument part for 2 flutes is on the last two pages. This setting is 92 measures and is arranged in Bb Major and c minor.
