Music to touch your spirit. . .

"I might not be a religious man myself but I know good music when I hear it, and this is very good! . . . I don’t think that I have ever given such high ratings to so many songs before. But the fact is that they are well deserved because the music is amazing. Simply wonderful religious ballads and they really get to your heart. . .everytime."
Fredrik Cole: Trax In Space

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found, was blind but now I see.

 

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved;

How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed!

 

Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come;

‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.

 

When we’ve been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun,

We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise than when we first begun.

 

Arrangement Copyright 2000 Don Wigton

  

Vanessa’s inspiring voice savors this classic as only she can!  Her heart-felt rendition over Don’s bluesy piano and B3 is emotionally-charged and deep.  It is an absolute must!

Song Story

"So the Wigtune Company did it again! Another wonderful song with beautiful harmonies and not to mention the vocals which adds something truly amazing to this piece. Download it if you haven’t done so earlier." Fredrik Cole: Trax In Space

Nobody despised the gospel more than the slave trader John Newton.  However, God touched Him with His  grace and Newton not only turned his life from sin to God, but became a powerful preacher in early America.  It is no wonder, therefore, that he penned one of the favorite praise songs of all time.  Newton’s tombstone (penned by himself) tells it all: “John Newton, clerk, once and infidel and Libertine, a servant of slavers in Africa, was, by the rich mercy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, preserved, restored, pardoned, and appointed to preach the faith he had so long labored to destroy.” 

Even though his health failed and his memory deteriorated at the age of 82, Newton declared, “My memory is nearly gone, but I remember two great things: that I am a great sinner, and that Christ is a great Savior!”

This version of Amazing Grace features an incredible vocal solo by Vanessa.  It is a must!

Amazing Grace has always been my favorite hymn. During my college years the mens chorus that I was in performed a version of that song that tore me apart. I was not walking with God at that time, but the words and vocal arrangement ripped right into my soul. That experience had a lot to do with my turnabout towards God.

Since that time I have been wanting to create an arrangement to the hymn. However, the opportunity just never came up. Therefore, when we began collecting song ideas for Vanessas first solo album, Amazing Grace immediately came up. As you may be aware, this hymn has been put in every context imaginable. . . from pipe organ to country to bagpipe. When I asked Vanessa how she would like to perform it she asked for a laid-back blusey feel.

After recording the instrumental tracs I played them for her and she went bananas! It was just what she wanted. So we immediately took it to the studio to lay her vocal. The song was so perfect for her that she laid it in one cut. There are a lot of good versions of Amazing Grace out there. After hearing her sing it, I have become convinced that hers is right up there with the best.
