Amazing Grace (And Then Some)
(Tuba Solo with Band)
- Ayotte Custom Musical Engraving
Almost everybody and his mother on the Planet have written their own arrangements of "Amazing Grace" so I guess I should not be the exception. "Amazing Grace (And Then some)" is written for Solo Tuba, accompanied by a wind band. I was inspired to write this chart by a young man named Brandon Jones who lives in the Mobile, Alabama area. He was about 20 years old at the time of this writing (in 2012). He wanted to dedicate it to his father who had died when Brandon was about 4 or 5 years old. My arrangement of "Amazing Grace (And Then Some)" is not just another "theme and variations" type of work. Instead, I have interwoven two additional hymns ("Praise to the Lord, the Almighty" and "I Will Sing of My Redeemer") in order to break up the monotony of just the one hymn (hence the subtitle "And Then Some") Oh, did I mention that Brandon plays a C tuba that was passed down from his father?
