Amazing Grace | Free Sheet Music for Piano Solo

The words to Amazing Grace were written by English Poet, John Newton (1725–1807), and published in 1779. Newton was ordained in the Church of England in 1764. The Christian hymn lyrics for “Amazing Grace” were written to illustrate a sermon delivered on New Year’s Day in 1773. Historians are unsure if music was used to accompany the first presentation of the text. It is possible that it was chanted by the congregation. In print, Amazing Grace can first be seen in Newton and Cowper’s Olney Hymns, though the text remained relatively obscure in England. In America, the hymn gained popularity in the early 19th century and was set to more than 20 different melodies. Finally, in 1835, the text was joined with the tune “New Britain”, with which is most often sung in churches today.

Lyrics
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.

Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) Italian Baroque Era Composer

Antonio Vivaldi was born on March 4, 1678 in Venice, Italy. Antonio’s father, Giovanni Battista, a barber before becoming a violinist, taught young Antonio to play the violin and then toured Venice playing the violin with him.  At the age of 15, Antonio began training to become a priest. At the age of 25, he was ordained a priest and soon after became known as the II Prete Rosso, “The Red Priest”, because of his red hair. Due to his health, he left the priesthood in 1703 after only 3 years. But he was still able to pursue a career in music.

Gioachino Antonio Rossini (1792-1868) Italian Romantic Era Composer

Gioachino Antonio Rossini was born in Pesaro, Italy on February 29, 1792 into a family of musicians. Gioachino’s parents began his musical training at a young age.  At the age of six, he was playing the triangle in his father’s band.  Antonio’s father made a bad choice and had to go to jail. His mother, as a result, decided to move her family to Bologna to support them as an opera singer. As a child, Antonio performed as an apprentice opera performer, and later entered the Conservatory of Bolonga to study cello and composition. Because he was so taken by the music of Mozart his classmates referred to him as “the little German.”
