* History of the song Amazing Grace

"As hymn songs go, Amazing Grace is one of the most recognized of all traditional Christian hymns. It has been used in many ways over the last two hundred years since its composition in 1772 by John Newton..."

For more information on the story behind this song there are several authoritative essays provided by the United States Library of Congress. The first, "The Creation of Amazing Grace," tells of the story surrounding the composition of the song by John Newton. The second, "The Dissemination of Amazing Grace," chronicles the spread of the song from its birth in London to its current world-wide recognition. A third essay, "Amazing Grace and Shape Note Singing" gives an interesting look at the music notation practices that were common in the 1800's and how Amazing Grace changed them.

* Amazing Grace: Just the Black Notes!

Indeed, you will be amazed!



Here's a note for those who might have misunderstood from hoover4000:

NOTE TO ALL VIEWERS: many of you have misunderstood what he said. He did NOT say an African American wrote the words to amazing grace. He never argued that John Newton was not an Englishman, so stop pointing it out! He just said that John Newton was a slave trader and he was. Most of you are so concentrated on black and white, you are missing the point of the whole video!! He is trying to send out a message that God intended for all of us to be united. Weather you agree with the details or not, the message he is trying to send is a good one. So lighten up and take the hint!!
When I posted this video, I had absolutely no idea how popular it would become.
Anyone who thinks my intention is to "misinform" or to show any disregard to any race or culture obviously knows nothing about me.
This is a great video, and I love Wintley Phipps and so I decided to share. I did not expect it to be so huge!!
Of course, we all agree that John Newton was in fact, a slave trader. That's the whole point. GRACE. That God can change the hardest of hearts within time if they'll listen. All the other is just stuff.
As far as not posting most of the ones that try to "correct" his views, it was simply to not cause a riot, the few times I have posted negative comments it caused a big debate between that person and my subscribers and especially considering this video has become so popular and so many people watch it, I wanted to avoid a big, long debate. That's it. So please don't be unkind to me and make allegations about my intentions to my subscribers when you are 100% percent wrong about me. I am anything but racist and I don't see how me posting this video would make me a racist, me posting this video means that I'm for unity between races. I have gotten into big long arguments with people multiple times because they made a racist remark. I am the opposite of racist. So please stop saying that because it's just not true and it hurts my feelings."

* Another blogger I have met, also impacted by this video!


"Here is a stirring story about one of the most beloved
songs of the faith, as told by the one and only Wintley Phipps.
This will bring you tears of joy and merciful godly sorrow.
It will take you down to the depths of God's grace
and then lift you up to the heights of His praise;
something only "slaves of the Lord Jesus Christ" can truly know.
I appreciate my dear brother; but more, I genuinely admire
his uncompromised devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ!
This is the message of Amazing Grace:
"I am a great sinner, He is a greater Savior"
In His Undeserved
Fathomless Grace,
Steve"
Romans 5:1-2

* Theory from Wintley Phipps

"I come solely to show that Reverend Phipps also has music theory and cultural history in his favor.
Amazing Grace uses a pentatonic scale. Properly spaced, five intervals within any octave are sufficient to generate an astonishing diversity of musical idioms, including Celtic, blues, and Negro spiritual. The belief that the pentatonic scale is the native tonality of children underlies Orff Schulwerk, a method of music education perhaps best known for withholding keys from kids' xylophones.
Piano keys It's easy to generate a pentatonic scale. You can climb the circle of fifths on a piano. Starting at middle C, this trip yields the note sequence C G D A E. If you have a violin handy, the strings there give you the last four steps in that sequence: G D A E. Rearranging all five notes within a single octave gives you the pentatonic sequence, C D E G A.
Or you can subtract two from seven and yield five. Remove the fourth and seventh scale degrees from the familiar "do-re-mi" diatonic scale — or F and B — and you will reach the same C D E G A sequence.
Most simply, you can follow Reverend Phipps's advice and play just the black keys: G? A? B? D? E?. How sweet the sound."
