    Hi Mark,
    Thanks so much for publishing this beautiful song for me. I love this site. The music is so relaxing. I think I will forward this to my mom because she loves to hear these choirs as well.

    Much love and friendship your way my friend.

    Hey Mark,

    Like it?! I love it! You have done a wonderful job with this site.

    Do you have any of the other Amazing Grace? The one that goes 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?

    I love that song. Young Mike played it at Mikes grandmoms funeral on his sax, and it brought me to tears.

      Deb you've made my day I've put a fair bit of work into this place (and an busy putting in more facilities to be ready for the New Year) so it's a real encouragement when somebody with your web design skills and experience says they like it

      Do you know the British boys choir Libera? If not I think you'll really like their singing (I'm very much a fan of their singing and have quite a few posts of their music as well as some music videos of their music I've put together on my YouTube channel). As well as being "Libera" they're also a church choir - St. Philip's in Norbury South London. This is their version of Amazing Grace hope you like it.

      (In fact I'm listening to their hymn "The Fountain" as I'm typing this reply to you).
