On Amazing, but Peaceful Grace

When mentioning Amazing Grace, different renditions pop in our heads. Some hear it as a traditional church hymn. Others hear a jazzier southern gospel version. Yet others hear the tones of a solemn bagpipe honoring a fallen hero.

For a variety of reasons, it’s been a well since I’ve mentioned our bell choir. This Sunday we ring this time-honored song not as a traditional hymn, nor as a gospel favorite, or even as a solemn tune – but actually as a peaceful tune as Gift of Grace (arranged by Arnold Sherman).

Watch the arrangement below performed by a church in Taiwan. Interestingly, this version starts with an 80-second bagpipe solo that transitions into the handbells; so if bagpipes aren’t your thing, just skip ahead.
