Amazing Grace -- for Jen

as it would be sung in 1840 is found here. This is the New Britain version.

It's the melody in the tenor and the soaring harmony in the sopranos that are so very different here. This group doesn't do as good a job as some in the accenting of the first beat of the measure.

Sounds different, doesn't it? But there is another that's really different -- a different melody.
