Janet Griffin: Music

Amazing Grace

(Janet Griffin)
John Foster
This song was recorded with Ric Hordinski in Ohio. I had asked Ric to do a version of Amazing Grace for me because it's Stuart's favorite song. He sent me the music on this and I was baffled. I'd never heard Amazing Grace done in 6/8. I played with it and played with it and finally on the way to Ohio to record it, this version came to me. There are extra lyrics and the interpretation is slightly ambiguous. Is it god or love that I'm singing about? For me there is no difference. God is as personal to me and as real to me as anyone else in my life.
