Amazing Grace ~ Alternate Music

I love every version of Amazing Grace I have heard. An especially beautiful choral arrangement set to different music by composer Craig Courtney can be heard on Beckenhorst Press's website:
Amazing Grace¯
Beckenhorst Press offers several inspiring arrangements of Amazing Grace. Each version is unique, and I recommend them all. John Ness Beck's includes a magnificent pipe organ, and the handbell and flute versions are wonderful as well.

Amazing Grace is good any time of year, but as we approach the Easter season, it is a good one for reminding Christians that God's grace is so amazing.


  • A video I shared last November explains the origins of this hymn and where the original music may have come from: Black Notes Only
  • A beautiful piano arrangement by Margi Harrell can be heard at grace24u
Finally, I will just mention there are many videos of artists singing this song. I have my favorite, but I'll just suggest if you have more appetite for versions of this song that you simply put "Amazing Grace" into a search engine, and you'll find many links to these videos.


  1. Nice new blog banner. Did you do this yourself or did you have some outside help?

  2. You've gotta know I had outside help and who it was.
